Vancouver Park Board announced Saturday afternoon that Kitsilano Beach is now closed to swimming due to high E. coli levels.
The guidelines recommend beach water is monitored for the presence of E. coli using two limits; a geometric mean of ? 200 E. coli/100 mL based on the previous five samples and a single sample limit of ? 400 E. coli/100 mL.
When either of these limits is exceeded an assessment will be made by the Medical Health Officer. Beach operators may be required to post a notice at the beach, “No Swimming”.
Kits Beach has been closed to swimming due to high E.coli levels. #VancouverCoastalHealth provides water quality reports and has advised of the latest sample counts. Visit https://t.co/j1IfzCmvRH… for details and respect signage placed at the beach. @VCHhealthcare
