dc.description.abstract Data collected by the Ontario Ministry of the Environment (MOE) in 1981 and 1982, and by the local Health Unit in 1982, determined that Bay of Quinte waters in the vicinity of Trenton, Belleville, and Picton displayed zones of elevated fecal coliform (FC) levels as a result of unchlorinated urban discharges. These discharges appeared to be intermittent, however, and led only to short term elevations in bacterial levels with the result that seasonal geometric mean levels at all public beaches remained below the Provincial Water Quality Objective (PWQO) for FC of 100 organisms/100 mL.
