RESOLVED: Core Area Wastewater Discharge at Clover Point

Apr 14, 2020 (updated Apr 24, 2020, 2:59pm)

Water sampling indicates enterococci levels are below the threshold. Advisory signs are being removed in consultation with Island Health.

Following the successful completion of construction activities at Clover Point Pump Station that required screened wastewater to be discharged out of the short outfall, all of the affected beaches have been reopened. Testing of samples was completed this week and results indicate enterococci levels are below the 70CFU/100mL recreational level.

In consultation with Island Health, public health advisory signs have been removed from all of the affected shorelines:

  • Between Radcliffe Lane and Dock St including Gonzales Bay, Ross Bay, Clover Point, Holland Point and Ogden Point in Victoria and Harling Point, McNeill Bay and McMicking Point in Oak Bay

Thank you for your patience while this work was completed.
