MORNINGSIDE PARK CLOSED DUE TO SEWAGE OUTFALL LEAK

Morningside Park in the City of Nanaimo is closed to the public until further notice, following a leak in the treated sewage effluent outfall line from Greater Nanaimo Pollution Control Centre. The leak was identified on July 28, and has resulted in treated effluent surfacing near the beach in the park. Members of the public accessing the shoreline in the area are also to stay out of the water.

The RDN is working as quickly as possible to repair the pipe, which runs through the park, off Morningside Drive, near Hammond Bay Road.

A notice advising of the leak was sent to nearby residents by the RDN on July 28. Staff are in ongoing contact with residents, First Nations, regulatory agencies, the City of Nanaimo, and School District 68 to provide updates on work underway. The RDN thanks all those affected for their patience.
