Started in 2017, the Swimmable Water Restoration Project is a chapter of Lake Ontario Waterkeeper that runs in Kingston, Ontario. The project monitors water quality at two popular swimming spots in Kingston – Breakwater Park and the Wolfe Island Boat Club. Water quality is monitored by Lake Ontario Waterkeeper staff during the summer, and community volunteers during the spring and fall. Monitoring of water quality at Breakwater Park is of particular importance, as it is a very popular swimming spot in Kingston, but is located near a sewage overflow point.
As part of the program water quality monitoring results for Kingston and Frontenac beaches are updated in Swim Guide on a weekly basis.
Swim Guide shares the best information we have at the moment you ask for it. Always obey signs at the beach or advisories from official government agencies. Stay alert and check for other swimming hazards such as dangerous currents and tides. Please report your pollution concerns so Affiliates can help keep other beach-goers safe.
