Birch Cove Beach Closed to Swimming

Wednesday, Aug.

20, 2014 (Halifax, NS) – 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.

Employees regularly test the water quality at its supervised municipal beaches and recent test results indicate that bacteria levels at the beach currently exceed Health Canada swimming guidelines. The municipality will advise residents when the beach reopens.
