Water Testing 07-08-2019

Thank you for participating in the July 8th, 2019 SLCA group water test. Results are from 25 tests with 1 positive test for e.coli and 15 tests clean of all bacteria. Your results from the Bureau Veritas Laboratories (formerly Maxxam Analytics Laboratories) are as follows:

 

Sproat Lake Community Hall         

BV Labs ID WB0529                           9346 Bomber Base Road        

COC Number          003310

Test                                                   Result                Unit                          Drinking Water Guideline

Total Coliforms (DES)               <.0              MPN/100mL                        <1

  1. coli (DES)                 <.0             MPN/100mL                        <1

 

This test sample shows NO contaminants.

Total Coliform: The Total Coliform group (of micro-organisms) includes: The fecal coliform, which are common to the intestinal tract of both man and animals, and the non-fecal coliforms that are naturally present in soils and on vegetation. The precise sanitary significance of the Total Coliform test may be difficult to establish. The test is offered as an indicator of bacterial contamination.

 

  1. coli: E. coli has been shown to be an indicator of the potential presents of enteric pathogens in water. The maximum acceptable concentration (MAC) of E. coli in drinking water is none detectable per 100mL.

Any untreated supply that contains E. coli should receive disinfection.
