Water sampling on Haliburton County’s beaches begins this week. The Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit will be taking water samples every week until the end of August to make sure water is safe for public use. This is a list of the beaches that will be sampled:

  • Algonquin Highlands: Dorset Parkette, Stanhope Beach, Hall’s Lake Beach
  • Dysart et al: Eagle Lake, Haliburton Lake South, Indian Point, Pine Lake, Sandy Cove Beach
  • Highlands East: Gooderham Beach, Paudash Lake, Lake Wilberforce Beach, Glamour Lake
  • Minden Hills: Bisset Beach, Little Horseshoe Lake, Twelve Mile Lake

Posted signs will be put up along each beach to show if it is unsafe for public use. Test results can also be found on the HKPR website.
