Local Round-up:

#1. Water Quality at the Beaches:

Now the summer is here and school is finished. We have had many requests regarding water quality at the beaches. For your information:

Toronto's 10 beaches with lifeguards were opened on June 12 and the City of Toronto conducts daily water quality sampling. For updated swimming conditions at the beaches, visit the City Website.

International Blue Flag: For the second year, four Toronto beaches are flying the Blue Flag for the 2006 swimming season. They are Woodbine Beach, Cherry Beach, Hanlan's Point Beach and Ward's Island Beach. More than 2,400 beaches around the world are proudly flying a Blue Flag.

Flying a Blue Flag indicates that the beach has met the highest international standards and is clean for swimming. The strict criteria relate to the following areas: Water quality, environmental education and information, environmental management and safety and service.

Visit the Blue Flag Canada to learn more about the Blue Flag in Canada and around the world.
