Beach water quality can fluctuate due to factors including lake currents, runoff and the outflow of creeks, changing environmental factors and waterfowl and animal waste. Beach water quality is typically poorer in summer due to warmer water temperatures and the number of people swimming. Contamination may also increase during and after rainstorms.

For more information on beach water quality, contact Interior Health at 250 862-4200 or visit interiorhealth.ca.

Reiswig is one of 30 Regional and 20 RDCO Community Parks and beach locations in the Central Okanagan.
