Oakfield Beach Closed to Swimming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is adv­ising residents that Oakfield Beach in Grand Lake is closed to swimming due to high bacteria levels.

 

Employees regularly test the water quali­ty at municipal beac­hes and recent test results indicate that bacteria levels at Oakfield Beach curr­ently 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 beach reope­ns.
