SG_NewLogo_1000bkrndDid you know that we collect weekly water samples from public beaches on Lake Windermere throughout the swim season? Through a partnership with the Interior Health Authority, the samples are sent to a lab where E-coli bacteria levels are measured in the water. The sharing of these results is supported by Swim Guide.org, a program created by Waterkeeper.

Search Kinsmen Beach, James Chabot or Windermere Beach and find current results from the latest sampling effort conducted by the Lake Windermere Ambassadors. Happy swimming!

Swim Guide is a website and smartphone app for iPhone® and Android. It helps you easily find your closest beaches, know at a glance which ones are safe for swimming, and share your love of beaches with friends and family.

Swim Guide delivers free real-time water quality information for over 7,000 beaches, lakes, rivers, and swimming holes in Canada, the U.S., Mexico, and New Zealand.
