An urban watershed consists of area of land through which water drains to common destination. The Rock Bay Watershed is an urban watershed with the city of Victoria, and is drained by a complex system of enclosed storm sewers. The Rock Bay Watershed is composed of four drainage basins, therefore four-stormwater outfalls discharge into Rock Bay. These storm drain systems drain approximately 434.40 hectares or 22.3% of the entire City of Victoria area.
