Weekend swimming conditions along the lake – dodgy at best. Caution advised.

BURLINGTON, ON.  For what is seen as the traditional last weekend when you can swim for as long as you want and not have to even think about getting back to work or school the next day – the public beaches along the lake are not particularly inviting.

The Region’s Water testing reports – well the results are below.  Not all that good.

Both the Beachway Beaches and the small Beach at the foot of Brant Street are deemed to be unsafe – you certainly don’t want to gulp down any of that water.  Acton and Milton are the only places where the water is deemed safe.  The lake is not being nice to us this weekend – and that would be because we have not been nice to the lake.

Feeding those geese is a large part of the problem.
