Comox Valley Watershed

Comox Valley WaterShed

Minimizing health risks to the public is one of Island Health’s most important responsibilities and we take the protection of our drinking water sources very seriously.

Comox Lake is the primary drinking water source for the Comox Valley and currently provides potable water for approximately 41,000 people.  It is the only large water source for the community and we want to ensure the quality and quantity of this supply well into the future.
