Beachway and Brant Street beaches not safe for swimming.

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON.  July 18, 2013.  While not hazardous, the water in Lake Ontario at the Burlington area beaches is described as “not safe to swim in”.

During the summer months, the Health Department monitors water quality at selected recreational beaches in Halton. Beaches are selected for testing based on their use for swimming and other water sports. Monitoring is done once a week or more if necessary. A pilot project is being undertaken at Beachway Park for the 2013 beach sampling season to examine potential factors influencing water quality. Therefore, Beachway Park will be sampled more frequently.


  • A beach is considered unsafe to swim if water tests show high amounts of E. coli bacteria.
  • Conditions posted are based on samples taken from the previous day.
