Canandaigua residents have a reason to celebrate as the Deep Run Park beach reopened on Friday afternoon. This decision by the Town of Canandaigua officials comes after the water at the beach was tested and found to meet the required quality standards for recreational use.
The closures were initially prompted due to high levels of bacteria detected in the water, leading to the temporary shutdown of several local beaches, including Onanda Park, Kershaw Park, and Deep Run Park. According to the town officials, the enumerated E. coli results for the analyzed samples at West Lake School House and Onanda were 220 cfu/100ml and 60 cfu/100ml, respectively, both figures considerably lower than the initial results exceeding 250 cfu/100ml. However, Kershaw Beach remains closed pending further tests confirming water safety.
Canandaigua Supervisor Jared Simpson expressed the community’s commitment to public safety and enjoyment in a statement on Thursday, thanking the public for their patience during the closures. He assured residents that they look forward to families and friends once again enjoying the area’s beautiful beaches. For the latest updates on beach status, residents are directed to visit the Town of Canandaigua website or contact the Town Hall.
