A water quality monitoring project was undertaken in May 2000 in three community watersheds (Lambly, Kelowna and Mission Creeks) near the city of Kelowna, B.C. to determine the relative contribution of pathogens to the drinking water supply due to recreational activities. Parameters studied were fecal coliforms, E. coli, Giardia, Cryptosporidium, and general water chemistry characteristics including temperature, colour, pH, total suspended solids, turbidity, total inorganic carbon and total organic carbon.
