York Region begins weekly beach water monitoring to advise residents of water quality

The Regional Municipality of York begins its annual public beach water sampling program. From mid-June until the end of August, public health staff collect weekly water samples from the following York Region beaches:

Town of Georgina (Lake Simcoe Beaches)

  • Church Street Parkette
  • Claredon Beach Park
  • Corner Park
  • De La Salle Park
  • Franklin Beach
  • Holmes Point Park
  • Jackson's Point Beach/Bonnie Park
  • North Gwillimbury Park
  • Peninsula Resort
  • Riverview Park
  • Sheppard Avenue Park
  • Willow Beach Park
  • Willow Wharf Dock

Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville (Musselman’s Lake)

  • Cedar Beach

Residents are encouraged to read the signs posted at public beaches before entering the water.

Water samples are submitted to the Public Health laboratory of E.coli testing. High levels may cause skin, ear, eye, nose and throat infections and stomach illness. York Region uses colour-coded signs to advise residents of E.coli levels.

A blue sign indicates sign indicates E.coli levels are acceptable and a red sign indicates E.coli levels are higher and may cause illness. The blue sign also indicates bacteria levels may increase after heavy rain and people should avoid entering the water for up to 48 hours after a rainfall.
 
Beach sampling results are posted online at york.ca/beaches

Rivers and lakes can be polluted from agricultural run-off (including manure and feedlots), domestic pet waste, malfunctioning private sewage disposal systems, boating waste and waterfowl. 

Residents are encouraged to do their part in keeping the Region’s beaches clean and safe for swimming by obeying local “stoop and scoop” bylaws, not feeding birds and animals at the beaches and by upgrading private sewage disposal systems. In agricultural communities, residents can fence their livestock to keep them away from streams and rivers and ensure feedlots and manure piles are properly maintained to prevent runoff getting into the waterways. These will reduce the amount of bacteria such as E. coli from getting into our lake. Residents should also stay out of the water if they have an open wounds or sores.

When planning a visit to a York Region beach or for more information about the program, visit york.ca/beaches, contact Health Connection or read the sign posted at the beach to find water quality information.
