Sunset beach maybe a bad place to swim soon..

Quit pooping in the water: Vancouver Coastal Health


"Between July 31 and Aug. 8, the amount of colony-forming E. coli bacteria per 100 mL of water at the popular West End beach increased from 150 to 180.

If the level reaches 200, the popular hangout will be considered unsafe to swim at and the health authority would post warnings along the shoreline."



For those of you guys planning to go there.. becareful... otherwise you could be drinking more then just sea water!

I don't know alot about bigger boats (yachts) but is it possible that they are "dumping their loads" before they hit the marina? Considering whenever I'm on the seawall, I don't see many people in the water, yet that is the only entrance/exit to False Creek where TONS of boats come in and out of.

Meh. I swam in a lake up in Naramata in the middle of an FSR that had a giant E-Coli warning sign on it. Nothing bad happened. Mind you, all the alcohol that weekend might have killed anything trying to get in...

It doesn't have anything to do with pride, or fireworks and really, nothing to do with boat traffic either.

Boats are actually more heavily regulated than the city itself.

Vancouver sewage treatment is the basic level, and removes "solids" only. Everything else goes down the river, under the bridge and out to sea.

Coincidental timing. Firework waste (and the crowds) don't really have anything to do with E-Coli buildup.

Interestingly, the beaches in Toronto have a board posted daily that tells patrons the Ecoli count each day and Toronto's upper limit for safe water is only 100 Ecoli/100ml. It is interesting why Vancouver's is 200 Ecoli/100ml.

Victoria sends raw sewage to the ocean untreated. Strainers are in place only to prevent large solid objects, like tree branches, from damaging lift station pumps or causing blockages.

So Vancouverites, don't feel so bad while you feel so bad from E.coli.

Then this ecoli thing may be my bad. I've had massive, bowl-cracking runs, daily. It's been Mexican fiesta every night for the last month.

Although the article strictly says E. coli only, it doesn't specify which strain. E. coli can be used to measure the background bacteria level. Not saying its safe at all, just saying that the increase can be caused by alot of things, including, but not only feces. The articulation of " is likely caused by a combination of bird, dog and human feces." is just a first guess, without further testing of the water sample to find the cause. If the level of E. coli O157:H7 is increased, then I'd be more worried.

its not just E.coli that is in the water. Other species considered as coliforms such as Klebsiella, Enterobacter and Enterococcus make up the the high readings in the water as well.

and I personally think 200 CFU/100mL is quite high. Don't know why our regulations are more relaxed than other places

Not saying it was the crowds, but the boats

you'd best avoid beaches too then. anything in water near the beach gets filtered into the sand.
