E. coli closes Recreation Bay Beach for the remainder of the season


The Public Safety Division of the Mohawk Council of Kahnaw�:ke would like to advise the community that Recreation Bay Beach will be closed for reasons of health and safety due to high levels of E.coli.

Recent water sampling by technicians with Environmental Health Services (EHS) of Kahnawake Shakotiia′takehnhas Community Services has revealed a rise in E.coli and is recommending the closure of the beach for the remainder of the season.

Technicians also noticed large amounts of bird droppings on the beach from ducks and geese that frequent the area.

With the hot temperatures expected over the next few days, water quality will not be safe for swimming.

EHS will continue to monitor the recreational waters of Kahnaw�:ke until their regular testing schedule ends in October.
