Chocolate Lake Closed to Swimmers

(Monday, July 23/07) - Chocolate Lake, Armdale, is closed to swimmers due to water quality problems, effective immediately.

Regular testing performed by the Nova Scotia Department of the Environment at HRM’s supervised beaches showed high bacteria levels in the water at Chocolate Lake. “No Swimming” signs have been posted and Beach Program staff will remain on duty during regular hours to advise the public of the closure.

HRM thanks the public for its cooperation and apologizes for any inconvenience.

For further information on HRM Beach conditions, the public can call 490-5458.
