Aylesford Lake Beach Reopened to Swimming Effective Immediately
Department of Engineering and Public Works
KINGS COUNTY, NS: The County of Kings is pleased to advise residents that Aylesford Lake Beach has been reopened to swimming effective immediately. The closure was due to higher than allowable counts of bacteria present in the water.

To remove the closure order, two consecutive sets of clear samples must be taken 24 hours apart. Both sets of tests have come back negative and the water at Aylesford Lake Beach is therefore deemed safe again for swimming.

The County of Kings apologizes for any inconvenience the closure may have caused.

Aylesford Lake Beach Closed to Swimming Until Further Notice
Department of Engineering and Public Works
KINGS COUNTY, NS: The County of Kings wishes to advise residents that Aylesford Lake Beach is closed to swimming effective immediately until further notice. The closure is due to higher than allowable counts of bacteria present in the water.

The lake water will be monitored and tested regularly and the public will be advised when the lake is open for swimming. The lake will remain open for recreational use, including the beach area, pathways, boardwalk, picnic areas, canteen, and washroom facilities.

For the moment, the boat launch will stay open for boats but the public is advised not to swim there. This aspect will be monitored and if necessary will be closed as well.

Lifeguards will be present at the beach to explain the situation to swimmers and prevent people from swimming in the lake.

The public is asked not to feed the ducks and geese at the lake as this is the probable cause of the bacteria.

The County of Kings apologizes for any inconvenience the closure may cause.
