Victoria, BC- Heavy rain caused combined stormwater and wastewater overflows along some shorelines in Greater Victoria during the night of Sept 23-24, 2020. The areas affected are:
- Between Rutland Road (Oak Bay) and Seaview Road (Saanich) including Cadboro Bay.
- Between Currie Road and Cattle Point Lookout Road, including Willows Beach in Oak Bay.
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 until sample results indicate enterococci levels are below the 70CFU/100mL recreational limit.
