Local Health Unit Shuts Down Two Beaches


The Windsor Essex County Health Unit has closed two area beaches.

The health unit has shut down Mettawas and Colchester beaches due to high levels of bacteria.

Swimming is also not recommended at Cedar Island Beach this week.

Holiday Beach remains closed but not from water quality, it's erosion from high lake levels.

All other beaches in Windsor-Essex are listed as safe for swimming. 

The water testing was done on Monday.
