Sewers flow into False Creek again! We are canceling dragon boat practice, as warning is from Burrard Bridge to Science World.

3 Sewers have flowed into False Creek AGAIN!


“Vancouver Coastal Health issues warning over False Creek water quality”

Worse than last time, on the Canada Day weekend.  Affected area is now Science World to Burrard Bridge, not just the East Basin – East of Cambie Bridge.

We have now canceled the Gung Haggis Fat Choy dragon boat team practice scheduled for Sunday, August 3rd.

Stephen Wong sent us this advisory, I have just talked with Stephen Mirowski.

PLEASE ENJOY BC DAY LONG WEEKEND – Away from False Creek.

alternatives:  go to Pride Parade…. or go to Powell St. Festival…
or go to BC 150 celebrations in Victoria.

Pollution in False Creek is fast becoming a civic issue.  This is an unnecessary serious health risk to a popular recreation area in Vancouver, as well as a structural issue for outdated sewer and overflow pipes in our city.

Cheers, Todd
