High E. coli levels in Vancouver’s False Creek has the Park Board looking at mounting a new water quality campaign.
NPA Parks Commissioner Sarah Kirby-Yung is pitching a new plan aimed at educating residents about the problem.
“To really remind Vancouverites, and get them helping out towards improving our water quality, and realizing that everybody can play a part in trying to keep our waters as clean as they can be.”
“We still as I said have a lot of users in and around the water, whether it’s paddle boaters, dragon boaters. And so we’re very conscious that people are still close to and near the water”
Kirby-Yung says the campaign will use social media to remind residents about where their waste water goes.
But she says it would also involve signs aimed at boaters, informing them about proper dumping regulations.
The motion goes before the Park Board on Monday night.
