The Capital Regional District wants your say on local harbours.

As part of its Harbours Environmental Action program, the CRD is developing water quality guidelines for the five core harbour areas: Victoria harbour, Gorge waterway, Portage Inlet, Esquimalt Lagoon and Esquimalt harbour.

A survey has been developed to seek input on how people throughout the region use the harbours, what they value and any feedback they have.

The survey is available online at crd.bc.ca/harboursurvey until Sept. 20. Paper copies of the survey are also available at the CRD office at 625 Fisgard St.

After the results are collated this fall, there will be public open house sessions or workshops where the survey results will be presented and next steps explored.
