Three beaches in Durham Region have warnings posted for elevated bacteria levels; Beaverton Beach North and South, Lakeview Beach East, and Kinsmen Beach, which also has elevated e.coli levels and the potential presence of blue-green algae. Lakeview Beach West was not tested for safety reasons due to high water levels in Lake Ontario. The Health Department is also reminding the public not to swim in beach water for at least 48 hours after heavy rainfall, as bacteria levels can increase due to runoff.
