Island Health advisories warning residents not to swim are posted at Cadboro Bay beach this morning, a result of heavy rains on Tuesday.

The rain caused 5,000 cubic metres of heavily diluted sewage to discharge through two CRD short outfalls in Oak Bay; subsequent water quality testing found fecal coliform levels unsafe for swimming in the surrounding area.

The signs will remain posted until Island Health confirms the water is safe.
