Beaches - City of Kawartha Lakes - Testing Completed for Summer 2017

The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit provides weekly beach testing results for the City of Kawartha Lakes during the summer months. Testing is now complete for 2017.

Testing is based on the most recent test results from the provincial lab in Peterborough for water samples taken from these beaches. The Health Unit advises local residents to note:

  • Beaches marked as 'OPEN' are considered within the acceptable levels as set out in the Ontario government's Beach Management Protocol.

  • Beaches marked 'POSTED" indicate bacterial levels in the water are higher than those considered acceptable as set out in the Ontario government's Beach Management  Protocol, making them unsafe for bathing.
