Four beaches reopened to swimming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advi­sing residents that Oakfield Beach in Gr­and Lake, Springfield Lake in Middle Sac­kville, Kinap Beach in Porter’s Lake, and Government Wharf in Musquodoboit Harbo­ur, are all reopen to swimming.
Beach supervisors te­st the water quality weekly at all super­vised municipal beac­hes during the summer months. Tests earl­ier this month showed high bacteria leve­ls in the water at all four beaches, but follow up tests show the water is once again safe for swimm­ing, as per Health Canada guidelines.
The only beach curre­ntly closed to swimm­ing is Kinsman Beach (unsupervised) in Lower Sackville.
