Former CBRA Board member Rick Page, PhD RPBio, has been researching the issue of sewage contamination in Cadboro Bay during winter storm events, and presents his findings in a PowerPoint presentation that we’ve included on the website.
CRD monitors bacteria at swimming beaches throughout the summer. Counts in Cadboro Bay were low in 2014. After some large early storms in the fall of 2014, the CRD began collecting seawater to test for bacteria. They found very high bacterial levels and issued a beach advisory.
