Wednesday, August 7, 2013 (Halifax, NS) – HRM citizens are advised that Malay Falls Beach near Sheet Harbour will be closed to swimming for approximately three weeks beginning Friday, August 9 until Friday, August 30.

The beach closure is required to enable Nova Scotia Power to lower the water level in the lake to conduct a repair on the Marshall Dam hydro system. The dates of the planned closure may be affected by the weather and amount of rainfall. Additional notices will be sent out to advise residents of any changes to the project schedule and associated beach closure.  

During the beach closure all swimming lessons will be cancelled. HRM regrets any inconvenience this may cause.
