Beaverton beaches open for swimming this week

All of the public beaches in Beaverton will be open this week.

However, six beaches across Durham have been posted as unsafe for swimming by the health department – Kinsmen Beach in Scugog, Lakeview Beach East and Lakeview Beach West in Oshawa, Newcastle Beach and Bowmanville Beach East in Clarington and Frenchman’s Bay East in Pickering.

Beaches are posted as unsafe for swimming when elevated levels of E. coli exceed the provincial standard of 200 E. coli per 100 ml of water.
