SOURCE INFORMATION

Northern Health's responsibility in Northern British Columbia is from the Queen Charlotte Islands to the Alberta border, and as far south as Quesnel. There is a map of Northern Health’s jurisdictional boundaries on the Northern Health website at https://northernhealth.ca/AboutUs.aspx

British Columbia health departments select and test water quality found at primary (swimming) and secondary (non-swimming) contact beaches across the province, following the Canadian Recreational Water Quality Guidelines. Most health departments in the interior test for E. coli from May to September (except for Vancouver Island Health Authority, which tests from June to September). Samples are collected weekly with a minimum of 5 test samples collected in a month. Warnings are posted by Fraser Riverkeeper if the 30-day geometric mean rises above 100 E. coli / 100 ml of water. There is currently no regular monitoring of these beaches.
