CRD: Overflows from Saxe Point to Finnerty Point

Cam Preece, Manager of Core Area Operations at the CRD, advises: 

Just a quick heads up: overflows at numerous CRD wastewater facilities overnight and early this morning. The overflows extend from Saxe Point in Esquimalt all the way to Finnerty Point near Queenswood in Saanich. In consultation with Island Health affected beaches will be posted and sampled until the enterococci levels are below the 70CFU/100mL recreational limit. I will advise when the beach posting are lifted.
