Local homeowners in Vancouver Island’s Comox Valley recognized for water wise landscaping


Comox valley - water wise recognition

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) has recognized two homeowners and one local business for creating water wise landscapes and for their commitment to reducing water consumption.

Entries were received in a competition that encouraged local homeowners to let the CVRD know that they have chosen to be water wise while maintaining a beautiful property. The CVRD also wanted to hear from businesses or institutions that have taken a lead in water wise landscaping practices, rainwater harvesting, and shower/toilet efficiency.

“Water-conscious design, use of native plant material, landscape condition and maintenance, environmental awareness, and the all-important “WOW” factor were elements considered when evaluating the submissions,” reports Mike Zbarsky, Engineering Analyst with the CVRD.
