Stage 4 water restrictions have been lifted for the Comox Valley Water System.
Mandatory restrictions were in place from April 12 – 22 during an emergency repair of a leak in the main transmission pipe.
The community was placed on the highest level of water restrictions for the duration of the repair in order to maintain sufficient water flows for vital indoor and firefighting water needs. The Comox Valley Reginal District (CVRD) would like to thank the community for doing their part to conserve water and ensure the system continued to be available for essential services.
“We know that these restrictions had a big impact on our community, especially local businesses,” said Marc Rutten, General Manager of Engineering Services. “Stage 4 is reserved for emergencies, and we really depended on the community to help out in this case. We really can’t thank residents and businesses enough for cutting back on water use for the duration of the repair.”
