Four Durham Region beaches have been posted as unsafe for swimming due to elevated bacteria levels. Beaverton Beach South, Kinsmen Beach in Scugog, Newcastle Beach South in Clarington, and Whitby Beach all currently exceed the standard of 100 e.coli per 100 ml of water. The Health Department is also reminding swimmers to avoid beach water for at least 48 hours after heavy rainfall, as bacteria levels can increase due to runoff.
