Interior Health rescinds Lake Country beaches swim advisories

Swimming advisory signs posted last month in Lake Country at two park beaches on Wood Lake have been taken down

Swimming advisory signs posted last month in Lake Country at two park beaches on Wood Lake have been taken down.

The precautionary advisory affecting the Regional District of Central Okanagan’s Reiswig Regional Park and the neighbouring District of Lake Country Beasley Park took effect Aug. 13 as a result of samples that indicated poor water quality due to increased levels of bacteria.

“Interior Health has now indicated that recent test samples show water quality has again returned to acceptable, safe levels under the Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality,” said RDCO communications officer Bruce Smith. “That means the advisory has been lifted and people can once again swim at these beaches.”
