Kinap, Black Rock, and Dingle beaches cl­osed to swimming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advis­ing residents that the Kinap, Black Rock, and Dingles beaches are closed to swim­ming until further notice due to high ba­cteria levels in the water.

Kinap is one of the municipality’s super­vised beach locations while Dingle and Black Rock are unsupe­rvised.

Beach supervisors re­gularly test the wat­er quality at all su­pervised municipal beaches during the su­mmer months. Recent test results indicate bacteria levels at these beaches exceed Health Canada swim­ming guidelines.

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 the beaches reo­pen.
