[ARCHIVED] Swimming Advisory at Lakeside Park (Beach) Remains In Effect

Swimming Advisory July 2020

The swimming advisory for Lakeside Park remains in effect due to high E.coli.  A second water quality sample indicates that recreational water quality remains impacted, and E.coli bacteria levels are above the Health Canada Recreational Water Quality Guidelines of 400 colony forming units (CFU) per 100 ml (latest laboratory results indicate 900 CFU/100 ml). Water quality is typically sampled weekly at Lakeside - or more frequently during episodes of impacted water quality.

When bacterial counts exceed Health Canada standards, swimming, particularly in shallow water, may increase the risk of illness, especially to persons with a weakened or compromised immune system.

Beach water quality can fluctuate due to a number of factors, including waterfowl activity and other sources of contamination, warm weather, lake currents and swimmers which stir-up sediments and organic materials from the bottom of the lake.

The City will continue to provide public updates when new laboratory results are available.
