Stage 2 water restrictions are now in effect for all North Cowichan water systems
Chemainus Water System Source Water
October 15, 2013
The Chemainus water system is supplied by two sources, the Chemainus River wells supply from October 15 to June 15, and the Banon Creek surface water supply from June 15 to October 15.
On Tuesday, October 15, the water supply for the Chemainus water system began pumping from the Chemainus River wells source. The Municipality expects water flow from the Chemainus River wells supply to reach the Chemainus water system users within the next few days. At that time, the Banon Creek supply will be turned off.
