How clean is the Gorge for swimming?

Recent sampling at Banfield park and at Curtis Point showed they had very good water quality.

  • Banfield Park - 5 faecal coliform/100ml
  • Curtis Point - 3 faecal coliform/100ml

VIHA monitors beaches on Vancouver Island and posts advisories  for beaches when it reaches 200  faecal coliform/100 ml.   The results from the Gorge are very good results.
