Kearney Beach closed to swimming

Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2016 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that Kearney Beach in Halifax 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 Kearney 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.
