The August 15th results from the North Saskatchewan Riverkeeper’s recreational water monitoring program are now available in Swim Guide. Please note that results only reflect water quality at the time of sampling and that E. coli levels are only one of many factors that affect the overall risk level of recreation activities in moving water.

Read our earlier blog post outlining the details of the monitoring program and to learn more about how to determine the safety of recreation in the river. The results posted here only reflect the water quality at the time of sampling and are only one of many factors that affect the risks associated with recreation in a moving body of water.
*note: Earlier information in our blogs indicated that test results are compared against the federal guideline of 400CFU/100ml. All information has been revised to reflect comparison against the correct federal guideline of 200CFU/100ml.
