The Comox Valley Regional District was an integral partner in the successful completion of the Perseverance Creek acquisition in September 2020 and again for the Lower Perseverance Creek securement process in 2022. Perseverance Creek is a salmon bearing tributary of Comox Lake, the drinking water supply for over 45,000 Comox Valley residents. The protection of the Valley’s drinking water is the responsibility of the CVRD and the purchase was supported as part of Comox Lake Watershed Protection Plan (WPP) recommendations.

“Source water protection is key to ensuring the Comox Lake watershed is healthy, resilient and able
to provide drinking water for our community into the future,” says the Chair of the Comox Valley Water Committee. “We are pleased to partner with the CCFS and the Village of Cumberland in this unique watershed protection collaboration that benefits the whole Comox Valley.”
