Beach Water Test Results by Community


The Health Unit uses a three-colour system to show test results for local beaches.

Read about the three-colour system here.

Watch this YouTube video to learn more about the Health Unit’s Beach Water Testing program


Please note: Test results reflect the water quality only at the time of sampling. The water samples can take between two to three days to process and results are therefore not displayed in real time. Changes in water quality can occur very rapidly and frequently. The sampling results provided are for information purposes only.
