12.1 Councillor Karsten

"That a change be made to HRM's policy regarding water quality notification. HRM currently has a Lakes Quality Sampling Program and Baseline Sampling Program in various lakes within the Municipality. The results of these tests are on line. However, currently HRM does not notify the public of Public Health concerns unless it is an HRM supervised swim area. I propose that staff notify the public of poor water quality, particularly when high counts of fecal coliform are detected within the lakes tested. This would apply whether it is an HRM supervised swim area or not."
