- Turbidity and Boil Water Notices
The Comox Valley Regional District board has approved the purchase and installation of ultraviolet (UV) treatment for the Comox Valley Water System, to be installed at the existing chlorination station. This temporary system will be operational in February 2018 and is expected to reduce boil water notices by approximately 80%.
The UV treatment is considered an interim measure until the new water treatment plant is built. Once the plant is operational in 2021, turbidity related boil water notices will be eliminated completely.
