Here’s The Latest Beach Water Test Results For The City Of Kawartha Lakes

KAWARTHA LAKES-Before heading to the beach, ensure it’s safe for swimming.

Each summer from June to August, the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District 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.

Test results are then shared with the community.

Green – Open (safe for swimming) – Low Risk

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).

Red – Closed (do not swim; not open for public use) – High Risk

Testing done this week shows that all beaches in the City Of Kawartha Lakes are green and safe for swimming.
