Comox Lake Watershed Protection Plan, Drinking Water

Comox Valley Regional District

Aqua-Tex recently completed a Watershed Protection Plan for the Comox Lake Watershed on Vancouver Island. This watershed supplies drinking water to approximately 40,000 people in the Comox-Courtenay region. Development of the plan has included consultation with a wide range of land-owners and managers since most of the vast watershed is privately owned. A copy of the plan can be found on the Comox Valley RD website:

  • We design and build projects that are efficient, effective and affordable both for the owner and for the community. Smart development can provide both economic and ecological benefits and can enhance the communities in which we live and work. Our solid understanding of the science of freshwater ecology ensures that our projects go beyond looking green, and function properly in both the short and long-term. We believe in an integrated team approach to sustainable planning and design.
