The Big Jump!

POSTPONED

In planning for the Big Jump, we’ve been working closely with Nova Scotia Environment and HRM to complete water testing – much the same as are public beaches. Last week, our harbour water test results were very good – the geomean was under 2 cfu/100mL (well below the maximum of 35 cfu/100mL). Unfortunately our tests that came back this morning at 37 cfu/100mL. Just above the max, but safety comes first. This can be due to a number of contributing factors, including boat traffic, wildlife, rain, etc. We will need to postpone today’s Big Jump swim, but we’ll be trying for another on September 7!

Date: August 15, 2019

Location:  Helipad at Bishop’s Landing

Time: 12pm-5pm

Description: Cool off on the Halifax waterfront with The Big Jump!
Join Develop Nova Scotia, Jump In and Halifax Water for The Big Jump – a free, one-day urban swimming opportunity at Bishop’s Landing and a chance to connect to the ocean in the heart of downtown. The area will be secured from boat traffic and will have ladders and docks for easy access. There will also be an on-site freshwater shower and water fountains provided by Halifax Water.

Water testing will be conducted by HRM prior to the event. There will be lifeguards and sunscreen on site.
