With the summer swimming season kicking into high gear, windsoriteDOTca will once again be providing weekly beach reports every week, all summer long.

We will let you know which beaches are safe for swimming, and those that are not.

Beach sampling will take place every Monday. If the beach is closed due to high E. coli levels, the beach will be resampled on Thursday of the same week. Beach water quality results from Monday’s sampling are posted on Wednesday during the summer. If the beach was resampled, results will be posted on Friday.

Based on samples taken Monday, June 19th, 2017:

West Belle River and Mettawas Beach are closed.

Swimming is not recommended at Colchester Beach and Point Pelee North West Beach as bacterial counts exceed 100.
