The Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit reports the following beach testing results for Haliburton County.

The information is current for the week of July 18, 2011, and is based on the most recent test results from the provincial lab in Peterborough for water samples taken from these beaches. Local residents should note:

Beaches marked as ‘OPEN’ are considered within acceptable levels as set out in the Ontario government’s Beach Management Protocol.

· Beaches marked ‘POSTED’ indicate bacterial levels in the water are higher than those considered acceptable as set out in the Ontario government’s Beach Management Protocol, making them unsafe for bathing.

· Beaches listed as ‘PENDING’ indicate test results are not yet available. People can call the Health Unit or for the most up-to-date results on these beaches.
