Lake Echo Beach reopens to swimming
The Halifax Regional Municipality is advising residents that Lake Echo Beach in Lake Echo has reopened to swimming.
Lake Echo Beach is a supervised beach. Municipal staff regularly test the water quality at all supervised municipal beaches, as well as one unsupervised beach, 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, in accordance with Health Canada guidelines.
