HALIBURTON – The Lindsay Post tweets that, “Two beaches, one in Omemee and one in Bobcaygeon, have been posted following the most recent testing by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit – HKPR.”

Results for two other beaches are not available.

The information is current for the week of Aug. 22 and is based on the most recent test results from the provincial lab in Peterborough for water samples taken from these beaches. The health unit (HKPR) advises local residents to read signs and act accordingly.


– 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.

– 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.
