As of yesterday, the CVRD has reduced water restrictions to Stage 2 in Courtenay and Comox.
The regional district is still urging residents to practice “water conservation measures” as rainfall levels are still lower than usual.
“Thank you for doing your part in respecting the Stage 3 water restrictions”, says Kris La Rose, Senior Manager of Water/Wastewater Services with the CVRD. “BC Hydro has indicated an inflow increase to 13 cubic metres per second, which allows us to bring the restrictions back to Stage 2. It is still important for Comox Valley residents to remain diligent and continue to be thoughtful with your water use”.
Stage 2 restrictions mean that residents can:
- Water trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables during prescribed hours and days.
- Wash building windows, and exteriors using handheld hoses with automatic shut-offs.
- Wash vehicles with handheld hoses with automatic shut-offs.
A full list of permitted water-use activities under Stage 2 can be found on the CVRD website.
