Toronto Beaches Water Quality iPhone App
If you are heading to the beach, pack your sun screen and download Toronto's new beaches app. This free iphone app provides you with the latest information on beach water quality.
From June to August, beaches across the city of Toronto are tested for water quality and are staffed by lifeguards. Water samples are taken daily and tested for E. coli bacteria. Toronto Public Health uses this information, along with other indicators, to assess the risk of infections resulting from swimming in the water. This app will give you updates on beach water quality as soon as they are published.
