Elk/Beaver Lake Sewer Connection Project Underway

Jul 27, 2017
Victoria, BC-The Capital Regional District (CRD) is constructing a sewer line at Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park and along Pipeline Road. This work will provide a future connection of the Beaver Beach and Filter Beds washroom facilities to the Saanich municipal sewer system.

Park visitors can expect intermittent delays and closures at various areas along the route (see map, attached), Monday to Friday during daytime hours, from August to October 2017. The washrooms remain open. Please use caution around crews and equipment.

Connecting to the municipal sewer system will enable these facilities to be open year-round to the public, reduce annual operating costs and eliminate the need to truck waste from these facilities. Appropriate measures are being taken to minimize impacts to park visitors and to the environment.
