Noon hour on August 23, 2014 at Main Beach, Port Stanley
It has become rare these days to see Port Stanley's Main Beach posted as unsuitable
for swimming as a result of high levels of bacterial contamination, but it was posted
on August 22, 2014 and Port Stanley's Little Beach has been posted this way since
August 15, 2014.
This does not mean you cannot go in the water, it is simply an advisory against
going in the water. At noon today, August 23, 2014, Main Beach was sparsely populated
and no one was in the water.
Please note that rough water or heavy rains can result in high levels of bacteria
at any time during the week. At high levels, these bacteria can cause intestinal
illness or infections of the eye, ears, nose or throat. The public is advised to
consider recent weather conditions when deciding on whether or not to go swimming.
