The Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health receives and interprets water quality monitoring results for Parlee and Murray Beach. The results are evaluated and compared to the guideline values in the Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality.
When bacterial levels are within safe limits, the water is open and suitable for swimming.
When bacterial levels exceed safe limits, a “No Swimming” advisory is in effect. In this case, the public is warned that the water is not suitable for swimming.
