Where to check the water quality at Toronto’s 11 supervised beaches

Three of Toronto’s eleven supervised beaches have been assessed to be unsafe for swimming right now due to E.coli counts in beach water quality samples taken over the past 24 hours.

Toronto Public Health reports that Marie Curtis Beach in Etobicoke, Sunnyside Beach in west Toronto and Cherry Beach south of the Port Lands are unsafe for swimming.

TPH says, “Swimming is not recommended during and after storms, floods, or heavy rainfall. Cloudy water can be an indicator of high levels of bacteria that may pose a risk to human health. Conditions are based upon E. coli counts in beach water samples taken over the past 24 hours.”

For current up to date water quality reports for all of its 11 supervised beaches consult the guide on this page on toronto.ca.
