Heavy rains prompt closure of beaches

Black Rock and Dingle beaches are closed yet again.

Black Rock and Dingle beaches are closed yet again.

Heavy rains on Wednesday means the harbour beaches are closed, possibly for three days. The rain can cause an overflow of screened wastewater into the harbour.

Kinsman Beach on First Lake in Sackville is also closed temporarily because of high bacteria counts discovered after a recent test.

Lifeguards will remain at the beach to warn swimmers away.

Call the Beach Line at 490-5458 or check out www.Halifax.ca/recreation/beaches.html for current information.
