Kinsmen Beach closed to swimming

Friday, July 10, 2015 (Halifax, NS) – The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that Kinsmen Beach in Lower Sackville is closed to swimming until further notice due to high bacteria levels in the water.

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

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