Please be advised that we are aware of the recent online posts pertaining to the water quality at Silver Lake in Lillas Fawcett Park.
The Town of Sackville tests the water at Lillas Fawcett Park on a weekly basis for E. coli bacteria. The results of our most recent sample, taken on July 24, were reported today and were well below the Canadian Recreational Water Quality Guidelines. The previous sample, taken on July 17, 2018, was also well below the Guidelines.
The Town takes matters such as these very seriously and therefore, we are reviewing the subject further. If further updates are needed, they will be posted on our website and Facebook page.
