2007 Durham Region Beach Monitoring Program

Beach Monitoring

Durham Region Health Department’s Beach Monitoring Program has now concluded for the 2017 summer season.

The Beach Monitoring Program will begin once again next year for the 2018 summer season. If you have any questions regarding the Health Department’s Beach Monitoring Program, please contact the Environmental Help Line at 905-723-3818 or 1-888-777-9613.

Throughout the summer, Durham Region Health Department tests waters at public beaches within the Region as part of its Beach Monitoring Program. Tests carried out at each beach included obtaining water samples to be analyzed for elevated levels of bacteria to advise area residents of the beaches that were safe for swimming.

2017 Beach Testing Results

Each week when test results are reviewed, they are sent to members of the media to assist with public notification of beach postings.
