Chemainus Water System Notification

The Chemainus Water System is supplied by two sources, the Chemainus River Wells water supply from October 15 to June 15, and from the Banon Creek surface water supply from June 15 to October 15.

On Monday, October 15, the water supply for the Chemainus Water System will begin the process of switching over from the Banon Creek source to the Wells source. The Municipality expects the high quality well water to reach Chemainus Water System users within a few days.

The Municipality continues to pursue approvals for year-round operation of the Chemainus Wells water supply. The Environmental Assessment Certificate amendment to enable year-round operations was recently granted; but additonal permits are still required.  The Municipality is actively pursuing these approvals.
