CVRD asking residents to save water this spring & summer

The Comox Valley Regional District is asking you to save water this spring and summer.

The district is encouraging residents to focus on water conservation, with the goal of conserving the district’s water supply as the effects of climate change continue to grow.

Senior manager of water and wastewater services Kris La Rose says educating people on water conservation is becoming more crucial.

“As we continue to see reduced rain in the summer months and higher average temperatures, fresh water becomes an even more limited and precious resource,” said La Rose.

“Water conservation is extremely important to protect supply for domestic use and emergency fire protection purposes.”

According to the district, last year saw over 10 billion litres of water used, with water consumption almost tripling in the summer months.

Ways to save water include installing low-flow showerheads and faucets, planting native species that adapt to dry summers, using smart control irrigation timers, checking for leaks, watering your lawn either in the early morning or late night, and turning the tap off while brushing teeth or shaving.
