Along the pipeline

The corridor along the Puntledge penstock pipeline and the pipeline itself are popular recreation areas in Courtenay. The pipeline supplies water diverted from the Puntledge River to BC Hydro’s Puntledge Generating Station next to Arden Creek. Water released from the Comox Lake Reservoir travels 3.7 km to the Puntledge Diversion Dam, then 5 km through the penstock to the powerhouse.
