Title: Bacteriological water quality of Six Mile Lake
Author: Burger, Allan
Abstract: During the 1970 surveys, Six Mile Lake had bacterial levels less than the water quality criteria for total body contact recreation. The only exception to this situation was the higher fecal streptococcus levels at two stations, 11 and 40. The geometric mean bacterial levels can be summarized as follows: Survey: August 29 - September 1, 1970 Total Coliform (TC)/100 ml = 157 (approx. 400) *, Fecal Coliform (FC)/100 ml = 5, Fecal Streptococcus (FS)/100 ml = 3. * The approximate geometric mean bacterial level at the geographically distinct areas which include sections of Trans Canada Bay, Hungry Bay, Long Bay and Crooked Bay. Some stations deviated from this average condition, but these deviations could be accounted for by changes in the natural environment.
