Data Collection Information

Samples were collected at each site using sample bottles obtained from the PEI Analytical Laboratory (Faecal Sample bottles).  Collected samples were kept on crushed ice for delivery to the lab on the same day that collections were made. The PEI Analytical Lab had been previously notified that the samples would be coming in that day, to allow them to prepare the media prior to the samples arriving.  They were tested for Enterococci, which is used as a primary indicator of recreational water quality (Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality, #rd ed. 2012).
