Swimming Not Recommended at One Local Beach


The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit is out with its weekly beach testing results.

Colchester Beach is the only beach in the area not recommended for swimming.

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

Last week, five area beaches were not recommended for swimming.

Holiday Beach remains closed but not due to water quality issues. It's been closed due to safety issues stemming from erosion caused by the record-high lake levels.

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