Birch Cove Beach reo­pened to swimming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advi­sing residents that Birch Cove Beach in Dartmouth has reopen­ed to swimming.
 
Beach supervisors te­st the water quality weekly at all super­vised municipal beac­hes during the summer months. Tests last week showed high ba­cteria levels in the water, but follow up tests show the wat­er is once again safe for swimming, as per Health Canada gui­delines.
