The Windsor Essex County Health Unit says swimming is not recommended at five area beaches.

They include Colchester, Mettawas, Point Pelee North West, Sandpoint and Seacliff beaches.

The health unit reports high levels of bacteria in the water at those beaches.

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 Tuesday.
