Cadboro Bay beach closed due to sewage overflows in heavy rains

From today’s Times Colonist:

Sewage overflow following heavy rain Saturday has prompted a public-health advisory for Cadboro Bay Beach.

The Capital Regional District issued the advisory and erected warning signs after discharges lasting about 30 minutes at a pair of outfalls. About 2,600 cubic metres of sewage was spilled.

The public is advised to avoid contact with the water.

CRD staff were at the beach collecting samples Saturday.

The signs will be removed once testing shows the enterococci levels are below the recreational limit.
