Langford Lake and Glen Lake closed to swimmers due to poor water quality


Anyone looking to do some swimming this weekend ought to avoid Langford Lake and Glen Lake, as both beaches have been closed to swimmers due to poor water quality.

Island Health notified the City of Langford of the poor quality on Friday, but no further details were available.

Neither beach is recommended for water activities at this time. The city has asked residents and visitors to not swim in or drink the lake water.

Victoria Buzz has reached out to Island Health and will update when they respond.

Langford Lake was recently closed to swimmers due to high E. coli levels found in the water, but Victoria Buzz hasn’t confirmed if it was ever re-opened.
