Wastewater Overflows along Shorelines of Greater Victoria

January 6, 2015

Extremely heavy rainfall is currently resulting in combined stormwater and wastewater overflows along the shorelines of Greater Victoria.

Residents are advised to avoid swimming or wading in waters along these shorelines, as the wastewater may pose a health risk. Wastewater (sewage), heavily diluted by stormwater is now flowing into the ocean at several outfalls in these areas. The areas affected extend from Finnerty Point, near Queenswood, to Clover Point, on Dallas Road and from McLoughlin Point west to Saxe Point.
