Anti-graffiti paint tested on Lagoon loos

Last week the City of Colwood undertook a pilot project at Esquimalt Lagoon aimed at reducing graffiti.

Crews painted the public washroom facilities in the area with a special type of anti-graffiti coating they hope will make maintenance of the building easier.

The washrooms are a frequent target for vandals and the City has to spend time and money removing the tagging. The pilot will see staff monitor the situation in the coming months and will help determine whether the solution will save the City on maintenance costs.
