Two Kawartha Lakes Beaches Posted “Swimming Not Recommended”

KAWARTHA LAKES- Two beaches in Kawartha Lakes are not suitable for swimming according to the latest beach water results.

Each summer from June to August, the Health Unit does regular testing of beaches in Northumberland County, Haliburton County and the City of Kawartha Lakes to ensure they are safe for swimming. The results are posted on Tuesday.

Centennial Park Beach West and Omemee Beach are both listed as “Yellow-swimming not recommended” this week.

Yellow – Advisory Posting – Medium Risk – (Based on latest test results, there are high counts of bacteria in the water. Swimming is not recommended, as it may increase your risk of developing minor skin, eye, ear, nose or throat infections or stomach illness. If you choose to swim during this advisory, avoid dunking your head or swallowing the water).
