Results are measured as the average of
bacteria per 100 mL of water from the samples taken from
the beach. The Provincial limit is 100, Health Canadaís limit
for swimming is 200 and Healthís Canadaís limit for secondary
contact activities (canoeing, fishing etc.) is 1000. The risk to
your health increases as the number increases.
Posting a beach occurs when there is evidence of an increased
risk to health and safety of its users.
