Lake Echo Beach Reopens for Swimming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that Lake Echo Beach on the Eastern Shore has reopened for swimming.

Lake Echo Beach is a supervised beach. Municipal staff regularly test the water quality at all supervised and four unsupervised municipal beaches during the summer months.

Previous test results showed high bacteria levels in the water, but follow-up tests now show the water is once again safe, as per Health Canada guidelines.

Halifax police have charged a woman for driving more than 50 km/h over the posted speed limit on Main Street in Dartmouth.
