Hold off that beach trip: OPH

As the temperature gets close to the 30 degree mark, the health arm of the city is recommending people stay away from local beaches.

Ottawa Public Health says there are still flood-related concerns including fast, colder, deeper water and the possible presense of debris.

"It’s important to always be cautious around bodies of water and always watch children around water," says OPH in an e-mailed statement.

Water quality testing will not begin until next month.
