Swimmers can once again take a dip at three Vancouver beaches.

Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) has ended the swimming advisories for English Bay, Sunset Beach, and Jericho Beach.

On August 11, VCH announced the beaches were closed due to high levels of E. coli in the water. The bacteria count exceeded a level of more than 200 E. coli bacteria per 100 ml of water.

The advisories for English Bay and Sunset Beach were lifted on August 14. Jericho was deemed safe on August 15.

Residents should note that Trout Lake still remains closed.
