Take the CRD Harbour Survey

Aug 12, 2013

Victoria, BC - The Capital Regional District (CRD) Harbours Environmental Action Program is working to develop water quality guidelines for the five core harbour areas. As part of that project, the CRD is consulting with the public on a community vision for our core area harbours: Victoria Harbour, Gorge Waterway, Portage Inlet, Esquimalt Lagoon and Esquimalt Harbour.

Working with community partners, an online survey has been developed to seek input regarding how people throughout the region use the harbours, what they value and any feedback they have. The survey is available at: www.crd.bc.ca/harboursurvey until September 20, 2013. Paper copies of the survey are also available at the CRD office at 625 Fisgard Street.

After the results are collated in the fall of 2013, there will be public open house sessions or workshops where the survey results will be presented and next steps explored. The map indicates the boundaries of the harbours in question.
