UPDATED: Oakfield Beach reopens for swimming

OAKFIELD: The beach at Oakfield Park on Grand Lake has reopened Aug. 16 for swimming after a closure for much of the week due to high bacteria levels.

Oakfield is a supervised beach. Municipal staff regularly test the water quality at all supervised and four unsupervised municipal beaches during the summer months.

Previous test results showed high bacteria levels in the water, but follow-up tests now show the water is once again safe, as per Health Canada guidelines.
