State of the environment recreational water quality
This first in a series of reports focuses on the Recreational Water Quality in the Middlesex-London area. The assessment of public beaches by the MLHU and the standards applied will be reviewed, as well as the variety of other initiatives related to surface water protection being conducted by local, provincial, and federal interest. The link between environment and health, as it relates to the growing variety of exposure opportunities to local surface water, is considered. Environmental indicators will be considered which measure the health of our surface water, thereby giving us a sense of our Recreational Water Quality. Recommendations for improvements to Programs, Communications, Policy, and Research are provided.
