[ARCHIVED] Notice to Public: Swimming Advisory for Beach at Lakeside Park



June 7, 2019

The City has issued a swimming advisory for the beach at Lakeside Park.

We are encouraging residents to NOT swim at the beach at Lakeside Park until further notice as the bacterial count currently exceeds the Health Canada Guidelines for recreational water quality.

Our Public Works Department has indicated that the most likely reasons why there is a higher than normal bacterial count is due to a combination of low water, higher than normal temperatures and the local geese population.

Questions? Please call our Public Works department at (250) 352-8238 or

Thank you for adhering to this advisory.
