Durham Beach Postings

Durham, ON, Canada / channel12

Test results for the week of July 4 indicate that one beach has been posted as unsafe for swimming due to elevated bacteria levels. Beaches are posted as unsafe for swimming when elevated levels of E. coli exceed the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care standard of 100 E. coli per 100 ml of water.


The Health Department reminds the public not to swim in beach water for at least 48 hours after heavy rainfall, as bacteria levels can increase due to run-off.
