^Additionally this section of creek was full of invasive trees that were starting to choke the creek which could cause flooding.


Most the trees that they cut down at the start of the current project had grown back over 15 years since the last time they were cut down and the creek dredged out. This seems like more of a long-term fix. 


It still comes out from underground one more time before it hits the ocean.

This is the only water quality fecal count I can find for Bowker Creek, was way down the last couple years, I assume this is mostly due to the fixing of cross connections. Would like to see what the last 15 years were like.
Maybe don't need to fear the "Bowker Juice" anymore?

Most people forget about all the hidden parts of Bowker Creek.

The public got its first look Tuesday at the restoration of a section of Bowker Creek that flows alongside Oak Bay High School property.

Except if the public had been following this thread, they would have had a look back in July 2015

Thanks for the heads-up, sparky!



Bowker Creek, which originates in the District of Saanich and flows through the City of Victoria before emptying into the Salish Sea along the shores of Oak Bay, will undergo a 'daylighting' feasibility study next year. The practice of daylighting enhances urban green spaces and waterways typically in-tandem with real-estate development efforts.
