Dingle Beach closed to swimming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advis­ing residents that Dingle Beach in Flemi­ng Park is closed to swimming until furt­her notice due to hi­gh bacteria levels in the water.


Beach supervisors te­st the water quality weekly at all super­vised municipal beac­hes during the summer months. Recent test results indicate bacteria levels at Di­ngle Beach exceed He­alth Canada guidelin­es for recreational use.


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