CANADIAN ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION ACT, 1999

Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality for Indicators of Fecal Contamination

Pursuant to subsection 55(3) of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999, the Minister of Health hereby gives notice of proposed Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality for Indicators of Fecal Contamination. The proposed technical document for these guidelines is available for public comment from November 26, 2021, to January 25, 2022, on the Environment and workplace health consultations website. Any person may, within 60 days after publication of this notice, file with the Minister of Health written comments on the proposed document. Comments can be submitted by email at water-eau@hc-sc.gc.ca.

ANNEX

Foreword

The Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality comprise multiple guideline technical documents that consider the various factors that could interfere with the safety of recreational waters from a human health perspective. They provide guideline values for specific parameters used to monitor water quality hazards and recommend science-based monitoring and risk management strategies. Recreational waters are considered to be any natural fresh, marine or estuarine bodies of water that are used for recreational purposes; this includes lakes, rivers, and human-made constructions (e.g. quarries, artificial lakes) that are filled with untreated natural waters. Jurisdictions may choose to apply these guidelines to other natural waters to which limited treatment is applied (e.g. short-term use of disinfection for an athletic event). However, in such situations, caution should be exercised in applying the guidelines as indicator organisms are easier to disinfect then other disease-causing microorganisms (e.g. protozoan pathogens). Recreational activities that could present a human health risk through intentional or incidental immersion and ingestion include primary contact activities (e.g. swimming, bathing, wading, windsurfing and waterskiing) and secondary contact activities (e.g. canoeing and fishing).

Each guideline technical document has been established on the basis of current, published scientific research related to health effects, aesthetic effects, and beach management considerations. Recreational water quality generally falls under provincial and territorial jurisdiction and therefore the policies and approaches will vary between jurisdictions.

The guideline technical documents are intended to guide decisions by provincial and local authorities that are responsible for the management of recreational waters. For a complete list of the guideline technical documents, please refer to the Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality summary document on the Health Canada website.

Proposed guideline values

The guideline values recommended in this document are single-sample beach action values (BAV) for both culture-based (Escherichia coli [E. coli] and enterococci) and PCR-based (enterococci) monitoring methods.

  • The guideline value using culture-based methods for E. coli in fresh water is ≤ 235 E. coli cfu/100 mL.
  • The guideline value using culture-based methods for enterococci in both marine and fresh water is ≤ 70 enterococci cfu/100 mL.
  • The guideline value using PCR-based methods for enterococci in both marine and fresh water is < 1 000 enterococci cce/100 mL.

Using indicators of fecal contamination for recreational water quality management

This document outlines how indicators of fecal pollution can be used as one component of a preventive risk management approach alongside other activities, such as environmental health and safety surveys (EHSS) and, in some cases, microbial source tracking (MST) investigations. Recreational waters may be impacted by fecal material containing enteric pathogens from numerous sources, including discharged sewage, treated wastewater effluent, stormwater runoff from agricultural or urban areas, industrial processes, wild or domesticated animals, and even fecal shedding by swimmers. The degree of risk from enteric pathogens varies between sources of fecal contamination, with sewage sources generally considered the most significant (in terms of the highest concentrations of infectious enteric viruses, bacteria and parasitic protozoa). Routine testing of recreational waters for pathogens is generally impractical, due to the variability in the types and quantities of pathogens present at any one time and the degree of difficulty associated with many of the detection methods. Consequently, as part of a risk management approach for recreational waters, authorities monitor for fecal indicators that are present in high numbers in both human and animal feces. Elevated numbers of these indicators in the aquatic environment are used to indicate fecal contamination and an elevated risk of illness.

Guideline values have been developed for E. coli and enterococci. The values consider both the potential health risks associated with recreational activities and the benefits of recreational water use in terms of physical activity and enjoyment. These guideline values are considered to represent an acceptable level of risk for recreational activities.

E. coli and enterococci are recommended as primary indicators of possible fecal pollution and of potentially elevated gastrointestinal (GI) illness risk in recreational waters impacted by human fecal pollution. Quantitative microbial risk assessment studies have shown that, similar to waters contaminated with human fecal pollution, waters impacted by ruminants (e.g. cattle feces) may also present a significant risk to human health. Recreational areas that are not impacted by human or ruminant pollution sources generally contain lower levels of human pathogens, compared to those impacted by human and ruminant feces, at similar levels of E. coli and enterococci. Detection of E. coli and enterococci in these water sources at the guideline levels may therefore represent a lower level of risk to human health. Alternative water quality criteria may be developed for these potentially lower risk recreational waters on a site-specific basis. However, care is needed to ensure that the risk of illness associated with any new criteria does not exceed the acceptable level of risk. Recreational area managers are encouraged to determine the sources of fecal contamination impacting a recreational water site. A variety of options are available, such as environmental health and safety surveys, microbial source tracking methods, as well as alternative indicators, to determine the sources of pollution and the remediation priorities to improve the water quality for recreators.

More details on risk management of recreational water quality are available in the Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality — Understanding and Managing Risks in Recreational Waters technical document (Health Canada, in publication).

Interpretation — fully vaccinated person

(7) For greater certainty, for the purposes of the definition fully vaccinated person in subsection (6), a COVID-19 vaccine that is authorized for sale in Canada does not include a similar vaccine sold by the same manufacturer that has been authorized for sale in another jurisdiction.

We continue to search for Canadians who reflect the values that we all embrace: inclusion, honesty, fiscal prudence, and generosity of spirit. Together, we will build a government as diverse as Canada.

We are equally committed to providing a healthy workplace that supports one’s dignity, self-esteem and the ability to work to one’s full potential. With this in mind, all appointees will be expected to take steps to promote and maintain a healthy, respectful and harassment-free work environment.

The Government of Canada is currently seeking applications from diverse and talented Canadians from across the country who are interested in the following positions.
