Albro Lake, Sandy Lake, and Long Pond closed to swimming

Thursday, July 4, 2013 (Halifax, NS) - HRM citizens are advised that Albro Lake in Dartmouth, Sandy Lake in Bedford and Long Pond on Herring Cove Road are closed to swimming due to high bacteria levels. Kinsmen Beach on First Lake in Sackville, Black Rock Beach and the Dingle Beach also remain closed.

HRM regularly tests the water quality at its supervised beaches and recent test results indicate bacteria levels at these beaches exceed Health Canada swimming guidelines. HRM citizens will be advised when the beaches reopen.
