The ocean outfall is located in North Saanich, and is a part of the municipality road right of way.

Rainwater Management Technique Used

A failing, bottomless culvert was replaced with a naturalized channel. Work was done to address bank erosion, capture sediments and improve the aesthetics of the area.

While this is an end of pipe solution rather than an on-site solution, it is a softer approach and represents an innovation for this region.

Cost & Funding

Approximately $50,000, funded publicly.
