Kaloya Regional Park Beach

Lake Country, British Columbia
Managed by The Swim Guide

BEACH INFO:
Families come out for an evening picnic, take the boat out on a summers day or play with the kids on the beach. The area is great habitat for waterfowl and supports Grebes during breeding season in the spring and summer. Bring your binoculars and enjoy the birdwatching! There are many benches throughout the park for those who wish to relax and take in the fantastic scenery and views of Lake Country and Kalamalka Lake.

The scenery at the park is so beautiful that many couples chose to get married here. The gazebo and view of lake provide a striking backdrop for ceremonies and celebrations. As with many Regional Parks, special events such as weddings, family reunions and other large gatherings can be booked by calling the Regional Parks office for a permit.

WATER QUALITY:
Individual sampling results from Kaloya Park have exceeded Health Canada's guideline values for primary water use twice in the last year (400 E.coli bacteria/100 ml).

On the week of June 8, a single sampling result showed 670 E.coli/100ml, and on the week of June 29 a single sampling result showed >12000 E.coli/100ml.
The safe level for primary contact is based on a single sampling result of less than 400 E.coli/100ml

MONITORING FREQUENCY

Kaloya Regional Park Beach is sampled weekly from June 13th to September 13th

SOURCE INFORMATION

The Interior Health Authority monitors the water quality at 54 Interior region beaches. Sampling is conducted during the height of swim season (May – September).

Interior Health follows the recreational water quality criteria recommended by the the Canadian Recreational Water Guidelines. One sample is collected per beach per week. The geometric mean for each beach is calculated from the 5 most recent samples.
Recreational water is considered safe if the geometric mean result is under 200 E.coli/100mL. The single sample criteria is 400 E.Coli/100ML. Should the geometric mean exceed 200 E.coli/100 mL, or the single sample result exceed 400 E.coli/100 ML, or in the event of a known hazard or spill, the Medical Health Officer will make an assessment of the risk to human health. If there is a risk to human health, a warning sign will be posted at the beach. Results are communicated on the Interior Health Authority website (https://www.interiorhealth.ca/YourEnvironment/RecreationalWater/Pages/default.aspx). To ensure consistency, Fraser Riverkeeper calculates the geometric mean result for the Interior Health samples. We update Swim Guide according to these results, as soon as they become available.

Test results from the weekly samples for the Interior region beaches are typically posted on Fridays. Recreational water quality for a beach is determined by E. coli counts from based results collected by either the beach owner (local beach owners conduct their own beach testing and provide the sampling results to Interior Health) or Interior Health.

A beach is marked Green when geometric mean results are under 200 E.coli / 100 ML water.

A beach is marked Red when the geometric mean is equal to or above 200 E.coli / 100 ML water.

A beach can also be marked red when a single sample result is equal to or above 400 E.coli/100ML water.

A beach is marked Grey when there are no current results or there is no available information.
