Results are measured as the average of E. coli bacteria per 100 mL of water from the samples taken from the beach. The Provincial limit is 100, Health Canada’s limit for swimming is 200 and Health’s Canada’s limit for secondary contact activities (canoeing, fishing etc.) is 1000. The risk to your health increases as the number increases.
