KFLA PUBLIC HEALTH BEGINS WATER TESTING AT BEACHES
6/15/2017 3:20:13 PM
Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington public health has begun monitoring the water quality at municipally owned or operated bathing beaches. Tests are done weekly from early June until the end of August, and includes a visual inspection of beach conditions and testing for bacteria. All beaches in Central Frontenac, Kingston, Frontenac Islands, South Frontenac and Stone Mills are safe for swimming. Sand Beach on Amherst Island is inaccessible due to flooding so the water hasn't been tested yet and testing hasn't started on North Frontenac beaches. Signs warning against swimming are posted when there is a high level of bacteria found in the water, and beach conditions pose a potential health risk.
