So far, the advisory only applies to the North side of the beach and there is no advisory for White Pine Beach South. Sadamat Lake, on the West side, is also open to swimming.


Fraser Health said they are taking samples weekly during the spring and summer. Warning signs are given when the tests deem the water is “unsatisfactory.”

Many have been gathering at Vancouver beaches amid the hot weather, while disregarding social distancing rules.
