November 16, 2022

The Comox Valley Water System will move to Stage 2 Water Restrictions beginning Wednesday, November 16. These Stage 2 restrictions apply to the Town of Comox, City of Courtenay, and the Comox Valley Water Local Service Area.

Stage 2 Water Restrictions:

During Stage 2 water restrictions residents may only use a sprinkler to water a lawn and garden growing on a property with:

  • An even numbered address – On Tuesday and Saturday between the hours of 6 am - 8 am and 8 pm - 10 pm. They may not use a sprinkler to water the lawn or garden on any other day or time
  • An odd numbered address – On Wednesday and Sunday between the hours of 6 am - 8 am and 8 pm -10 pm. They may not use a sprinkler to water the lawn or garden on any other day or time.
  • Local government may use a sprinkler to water parks, ornamental lawns and grassed boulevards between the hours of 11 pm and 7 am on even numbered days for even numbered addresses and odd numbered days for odd numbered addresses.

This shift in water restrictions is based on the CVRD water licence and water use agreement in partnership with BC Hydro. Although we are reducing water restrictions, rainfall continues to be significantly lower than usual. Please continue to use good judgement with your water use. For more information, visit www.comoxvalleyrd.ca/whyweneedrestrictions
