Penstock Shutdown

Annual Maintenance of BC Hydro Penstock March 18 - 23

Every year, BC Hydro conducts maintenance on penstock and fish screen cleaning at the Puntledge diversion dam.

During this time water from the Comox Valley Water System must be pumped directly from the Puntledge River. Because less water will be available for the system, we are asking residents to manage water use carefully and avoid activities like washing driveways and cars.

For more information about this maintenance and how it affects our system, please read our news release.
