Area Beach Update

This page was reviewed or revised on Friday, September 1, 2017 10:15 AM

Point Edward, ON - The 2017 beach sampling season is now over. This is the final notification regarding beach conditions for the 2017 season.

The County of Lambton's Medical Officer of Health advises the following update on area beaches sampled the week of August 28, 2017.

Beaches Sampled on Lake Huron:

  • Grand Bend (North Beach)
  • Grand Bend (South Beach)
  • Highland Glen
  • Bright’s Grove (including Mike Weir Park)
  • Canatara Park
  • Ipperwash Main Beach
  • Pinery Provincial Park

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:

  • Seager Park
  • Branton Cundick Park
  • Brander 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.

Beach water quality testing will commence in June 2018.
