With summer weather in full swing, Island Health is back to reporting weekly beach sampling results.
Luckily, ahead of this weekend’s heatwave, only one south Island beach is being recommended as a no swim zone.
Gonzales Bay, Island Health’s latest report shows, has high bacteria levels and a significant risk of illness. Swimming is not recommended.
Moderate water quality issues are also being reported at Glen Lake in Langford and Esquimalt Gorge Park. There is a higher risk of illness at both locations, but no swimming advisories have been issued.
Weekly beach reports can be found at islandhealth.ca.
