*Due to high water levels and debris in the area, the Health Department will delay beach sampling at Lakeview Beach West, Oshawa. The Health Department will continue to monitor access to this beach in the coming weeks and begin normal sampling when the area is considered safe.

The Health Department reminds the public not to swim in beach water for at least 48 hours after heavy rainfall, as bacteria levels can increase due to run-off.

Throughout the summer, the Health Department conducts bacteriological water tests to determine if these beaches are safe for swimming. The Public Health Ontario Laboratory in Peterborough provides analysis of all water samples submitted for testing. Each week when test results are reviewed, they will be sent to members of the media to assist with public notification of beach postings. Media notifications will be done by Friday of each week.

For more information about the Health Department’s Beach Monitoring program, please visit durham.ca/beaches, or call the Environmental Help Line at 905-723-3818 or 1-888-777-9613.
