Water Quality

TWC Lessons and Water Quality Explained

We teach on land, on simulators for a portion of lesson and there is a classroom component to it as well, so if water quality is bad much of the lesson can still be completed on land.

The Cherry beach blue flag program allows a maximum bacteria level of 100 parts before closing beach for swimming, rest of Canada is 200 parts before closing beach for swimming. In 2016, Cherry Beach passed the provincial guidelines 99% of the time which you can read here: theswimguide.org/beach/32

You can also download the following app to easily monitor water quality for yourself: app.toronto.ca/tpha/beaches.html

It is important to note that there are big differences in location like the Outer and Inner Harbour and windsurfing over swimming. The Inner Harbour is definitely impacted by outflow from the Don River after a storm. However the Toronto Windsurfing Club is located in the Outer Harbour so does not suffer from the same problems as the Inner Harbour.
