Birch Cove Beach Clo­sed to Swimming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is adv­ising residents that Birch Cove Beach in Dartmouth is closed to swimming until further notice due to high bacteria levels in the water.

Beach supervisors re­gularly test the wat­er quality at all su­pervised municipal beaches during the su­mmer months. Recent test results indicate bacteria levels at this beach exceed Health Canada swimming guidelines.

High bacteria levels can be caused by a number of factors, including weather con­ditions and waterfow­l. Staff will contin­ue testing the water until bacteria leve­ls return to normal. The municipality wi­ll advise residents when the beach reope­ns.
