The County of Lambton's Medical Officer of Health advises the following update on area beaches that were sampled for the week of July 17, 2017.
Beaches Sampled on Lake Huron:
Grand Bend (North Beach)
Grand Bend (South Beach)
Bright’s Grove (including Mike Weir Park)
Pinery Provincial Park
Ipperwash Main Beach
There are no beaches posted with warning signs at this time.
No sampling occurs along the St. Clair River; however, a caution sign, advising of high bacterial levels following heavy rainfall, has been permanently placed at:
Branton Cundick Park
Following heavy rainfall, the water at area beaches may be temporarily polluted for up to 48 hours. If the water becomes cloudy due to wave activity, bacteria from the bottom may become suspended and increase the risk of illness.
Sampling continues; updates will follow as necessary.
