Residents advised not to swim in Kinsmen Beach

Thursday, June, 27, 2013 (Halifax, NS) - HRM citizens are advised not to swim in Kinsmen Beach, on First Lake in Sackville, due to high bacteria levels. The beach has not yet been officially opened, but HRM felt given the levels, citizens should be notified.

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