Letter: Bowker’s design and flows should be considered

Heavy winter rains have brought significant erosion of landscaping

Re: Bowker project ‘living the dream,’ Oak Bay News March 4

I am encouraged to see revitalization of the Bowker Creek area alongside Oak Bay High School. The heavy rains in late 2015, however, put the design and construction of the waterway and landscaping to the test, resulting in some fairly significant erosion of materials and plants.

The responsible agency would be well served to review the waterway’s engineering and flows to be sure that, in the likely event of flooding, its integrity will not be compromised leading to significant damage to the creek.
