Beach Testing

Peterborough Public Health maintains a routine surveillance program for public beaches during the summer months to ensure that the water quality is safe for swimming.

Some of the main factors that can result in unsafe levels of bacteria between inspection times are: heavy rainfall, large numbers of waterfowl, high winds or wave activity, large numbers of swimmers.

The surveillance program begins in June and continues until the end of August each year.
