Ohiarihko:wa / July 29, 2015

The Mohawk Council of Akwesasne’s Community Health Program is advising the community that Lazore’s Beach in Tsi Snaihne (Snye) is closed to swimming due to high bacteria levels.

Employees regularly test the water quality at designated public beaches and recent test results indicate that bacteria levels at Lazore’s Beach exceed Health Canada swimming guidelines.

The Community Health Program will advise residents when the beach reopens.
