Five Local Beaches Not Recommended for Swimming


Swimming is not recommended at five local beaches.

The latest beach testing results have been released by the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit.

While there are no beach closures, swimming is not recommended at Sandpoint, West Belle River, Mettawas, Colchester and Cedar Island Beach.

The health unit reports high levels of bacteria in these waters may pose a risk to your health.

Testing was not conducted at Holiday Beach, which remains closed due to unsafe beach conditions related to erosion issues that may result in injury.
