Seba Beach on Wabamun Lake, AB
Seba Beach on Wabamun Lake Short Term Forecast
This beach in the summer village of Seba Beach is one of north central Albertas oldest and most popular resort areas. Especially on the August long weekend for the Regatta celebrations. The name was apparently chosen by postal officials and it may have been taken after Seba son of Cush from Genesis 10:7. The beach is long and sandy and has day use amenities nearby. The public beach area is small with a playground. The water is shallow and usually clear on the West side of this large recreational lake. The swimming area for the public beach is nestled between 2 public docks. Seba has an excellent fireworks display and silly parade on the August long weekend. Parking is the near the large pier and most of the public beach is sandwiched between cottages on either side. Wabamun was the site of a CN Train derailment close to the Town of Wabamun on the Northeastern side of the lake. Toxic chemicals were spilled into the lake but recent water quality monitoring has revealed the lake is safe for swimming and recreation. The water levels of the lake have stayed consistent because of an agreement with the nearby power generation companies and Alberta Government to pump water back into the lake. NOTE: There have been reports of swimmer's itch on Wabamun Lake from www.swimmersitch.ca. Towel off vigorously after swimming or wading to help avoid symptoms. The beach and lake were free of advisories for the whole of the 2011 2012 and 2013 bathing seasons and the lake has historically good recreational water quality testing results.
