Vancouver Island residents can once again visit the Sooke Potholes.
The District of Sooke said in an update posted to their website on Sunday that the Sooke Potholes are now open to the public.
“With water receding, the Sooke Potholes are open,” said Christina Moog, communication coordinator with the District of Sooke.
The popular area had been closed to visitors since Saturday afternoon after the Capital Regional District determined that the Sooke Lake Reservoir was at full capacity and overflowing due to heavy rain.
Videos posted on social media showed large amounts of water at the Potholes.
The Sooke Potholes are open from dawn to dusk with the gates closing at around 4:30 p.m. daily.
Water levels at the Potholes will continue to be monitored, according to the District of Sooke.
