E.coli levels in False Creek are currently over 6 times higher than normal

Excerpt: While the Canadian Recreational Water Quality Guidelines recommend a level of less than 200 E.coli bacteria per 100 mL of water for swimming, East False Creek’s level is at 1,304 E.coli per 100 mL – more than six times the maximum acceptable amount. These readings are based on Vancouver Coastal Health’s latest test conducted on July 12.

The numbers are nearly double the previous test’s readings on July 5, when E.coli levels were at 776 E.coli per 100 mL. These numbers fluctuate throughout the year, peaking during the summer.
