MONITORING FREQUENCY

Alder Bay (FRK) is sampled weekly from January 1st to December 31st

SOURCE INFORMATION

Fraser Riverkeeper follows the Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality. The recommended threshold for bathing is a geometric mean of 200 E coli/100mL and a single sample of 400 E coli/100 mL.

A beach is marked Green when geometric mean results are under 200 E.coli / 100 mL water and single sample results are below 400 E.coli/100mL.
A beach is marked Red when the geometric mean results are equal to or above 200 E.coli / 100 mL water or single sample results are above 400 E.coli/100 mL.
A beach is marked Grey when there are no current results or there is no available information.

The geometric mean is calculated based on the 5 last samples. 

The single simple is the weekly sample result.
