All Toronto beaches safe to swim

Eleven beaches produce positive water tests
Latest results are positive for all beaches for first time in weeks
By Kris Scheuer

Oh happy days.
For what I believe may be the first time this summer, all Toronto beaches have the green light from public health as safe for swimming. This means tests show 100 E.coli or less per 100 ml of water.
The latest results posted today are for Aug. 8. Too bad there’s a thunderstorm today so it’s unlikely anyone will be swimming in the lake, but never mind that. It’s supposed to feel like 40 C today and if the sun comes out we will all need to cool off in that lovely lake water. The city tests beach water daily all summer, so check for updates here.
Here’s results for Aug. 8:
