RESOLVED: Core Area Wastewater Discharge at Macaulay Point

Jun 22, 2020 (updated Jun 25, 2020, 9:34am)

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 Macaulay Point Pump Station that required screened wastewater to be discharged out of the short outfall, all of the affected beaches have been reopened.

Public health advisory signs have been removed from all of the affected shorelines:

  • Between Fraser Street and Victoria View Road including Saxe Point, Macaulay Point and McLoughlin Point in Esquimalt; and
  • Along Dallas Road between Dock Street and Government Street in Victoria.
