Rain leads to wastewater discharge on some CRD shorelines.

All that heavy rain has caused combined stormwater and wastewater overflows along some shorelines in Greater Victoria.

The areas affected are:

  • Between Rutland Road (Oak Bay) and Seaview Road (Saanich) including Cadboro Bay.
  • Between Trafalgar Park and Radcliffe Lane including McNeill Bay in Oak Bay.
  • Between Fraser Street and Victoria View Road including Saxe Point, Macaulay Point and McLoughlin Point in Esquimalt.
  • Between Cook Street and St. Charles Street including Clover Point and Ross Bay in Victoria.
  • Between Arbutus Cove Lane and Telegraph Bay Road including Arbutus Cove, Finnerty Cove and Telegraph Cove in Saanich.

The CRD says as a result of these discharges, residents are advised to avoid entering the waters along the affected shorelines, as the wastewater may pose a health risk.

As a precaution and in consultation with Island Health and the local municipalities, beaches within the affected areas will be posted with public health advisory signs.
