Interesting to see the results of the beach testing for Bowen Island this summer.  The big surprise for me was seeing that Pebbly Beach, with the exception of a strange Island wide spike in May turns out to be the most consistently clean and safest beach on the island.  Surprising because it is about 200 meters across Mannion Bay from the most polluted beach that anyone swims at.  Snug Cove Beach is just not a swimmable beach at all, and the marina there contributes to the horrible condition of the water.

Not tested are Crayola, September Morn, Cates Bay, Miller's Landing, Seymour Bay and the Roger Curtis Beaches.  Be interesting to know about these ones.
