High Level of Bacteria on the Beach, Stop Swimming!

The high level of E. coli, large and diverse groups of bacteria increased the risk of gastrointestinal illness to swimmers.

All beaches shall remain open for public use but swimming and plodding over water are not supported.

The guidelines recommend a level of less than 200 E. coli bacteria per 100 ml of water and when the sample amount goes beyond the level, the situation is then considered to be dangerous and precautions are then taken to protect the water.

Metro Vancouver beaches are controlled to keep in compliance with the Canadian recreational water quality guidelines.

The Vancouver coastal health interpreted about removing the swimming advisory once the bacteria level lessens. It is currently working to supervise water quality and make it available for people to swim.

Every Friday, E. coli counts is checked for Metro Vancouver. The status of the beaches will be re-evaluated soon. The trout lake was also shut down in July due to the increase in E. coli level exceeding the health risk.
