Why We Sample

According to the third edition of the Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality, an estimated 400,000 Canadians get sick every year from swimming in polluted waters. The Vancouver Water Monitoring Program is our response to that. Over 2018, Fraser Riverkeeper focused on sampling well-used recreational hotspots around False Creek where stand-up paddlers can be seen falling into the water, dogs and children wade at the shallows, kayakers are drenched by splashing water, and adventurous individuals plunge in to cool off.
