The Capital Regional District (CRD) is asking the public to avoid certain shorelines this week after heavy rain caused core area wastewater discharge and stormwater overflow.
The overflows may pose health risks to those who enter the water, the CRD notes in a warning issued Jan. 3.
Affected areas include shorelines between Arbutus Cove Lane and Telegraph Bay Road in Saanich, Tarn Place (in Oak Bay) and Seaview Road (in Saanich) including Cadboro Bay and between Trafalgar Park and Radcliffe Lane including McNeill Bay.
The warning will be issued until sample results indicate enterococci bacteria levels are below the recreational limit.
