For the first time this summer, Station Beach in Kincardine has been marked unsafe for swimming.

Station Beach in Kincardine, a Blue Flag beach, was posted closed this morning, along with Southampton beach and Port Elgin beach. The Grey-Bruce Health Unit said water samples taken Tuesday found all three beaches had higher-than-acceptable levels of bacteria. High bacteria levels mean possible health risks for swimmers.

The beaches will remain closed until the Health Unit collects samples indicating the water is safe.

 


If the lakes are unsafe then

If the lakes are unsafe then the authorities must be put to the trial. This should not be tolerated like this.
