The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that Chocolate Lake, Papermill Lake, and Kearney Lake have reopened to swimming.
Chocolate Lake, Papermill Lake, and Kearney Lake are supervised beaches. Municipal staff regularly test the water quality at all supervised municipal beaches, as well as two unsupervised beaches, during the summer months.
Previous test results showed high bacteria levels in the water at all three locations, but follow-up tests now show the water is once again safe, in accordance with Health Canada guidelines.
