Black Rock Beach Reopens to Swimming, Dingle Beach Now Closed

Thursday, Aug. 20, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that Black Rock Beach in Halifax has reopened for swimming; however, Dingle Beach, also in Halifax, will be closed 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 Dingle Beach exceed Health Canada swimming guidelines, while tests at Black Rock show it is once again safe for swimming.

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 Dingle Beach reopens.
