I know there are a few boats looking for crew. Last minute plan changes have caused most of them I believe.

So, none of that sinks?
Doesn't effect the clams, oysters,etc.
this is what you want to pass on to your children?

nope never smelt any of it, even when the storm water over fills the sewer lines, and when that happens the weather is bad enough you don't want to be outside much less on or (god forbid) in the water.
I personally cant eat the shell fish but everybody I know who eats them has never said anything, including the guys and gals from back east. I also love a nice fresh caught salmon, because it still has less crap (pun intended) in it than the farmed stuff.

as for my children, well they are years away from being born and I don't think Victoria and area can get much bigger. Unlike other places there isn't much more room to grow the city, with water (on three sides) and provincial parks and mountains closing us in.

365 days in a year x 24 hours = 8760 hours per year

average tide time = 8 hours

7,000,000,000 gallons flushed per 8760 hours = 799,000 gallons per hour

approx volume of Juan De fuca strait (90km long x 20km wide x avg 100m deep) = 47,500,000,000 gallons

0.00168% of the water in the JDF strait is flushed water from Vic per hour

per 8 hour cycle that 0.134% of the water

now factor in that that's not just used toilet water because the 350k of use that live in the Greater Victoria District aren't flushing a deuce every 2 hours all day long. It includes doing the dishes, laundry, washing of hands and cleaning the house.


Living here I'd like a treatment plant but we should be looking at hormones and pharmaceuticals rather than solids which is what everybody else seems to think is the big issue

Is my math correct. Did Pitoraq win the short course ?
