Springfield Beach & Kinsman Beach closed to swimming

The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that Springfield Beach and Kinsman Beach are closed to swimming until further notice due to high bacteria levels in the water.

Beach supervisors regularly test the water quality at all supervised and four unsupervised municipal beaches during the summer months. Recent test results indicate bacteria levels at these beaches exceeds 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.
