Wastewater has discharged along the shorelines in the Greater Victoria region.
According to the Capital Regional District, heavy rain on Saturday resulted in combined stormwater and wastewater overflows along shorelines in Saanich and Oak Bay.
Discharges occurred between Arbutus Cove Lane and Telegraph Bay Road in Saanich, between
Tarn Place in Oak Bay and Seaview Road in Saanich including Cadboro Bay, and between Trafalgar Park and Radcliffe Lane including McNeill Bay in Oak Bay.
As a result, the CRD is advising residents to avoid entering the waters where the discharges occurred as the wastewater may pose a health risk.
