Vancouver Coastal Health reminds residents to stay out of the water
The City of Vancouver and Vancouver Coastal Health have reminded residents to stay out of the water until the "all-clear" is given.
Beach patrons have been told to obey city signage, use extreme caution and do not touch oil that may wash up on shore.
The following list indicates all the places that oil has been reported:
- English Bay Beach
- Sunset Beach
- Second Beach
- Third Beach
- Siwash Rock
- Crab Park
- New Brighton Park
- Inner Coal Harbour
False Creek remains open for recreational boat and paddle activities, but beaches north of False Creek are closed. All residents are reminded to exercise caution on the beaches, stay away from the coastline and call 311 if they see oil washing up near the shore.
Vancouver Coastal Health's website will provide regular updates on the situation in the water.
