Beach Water Quality Overview

Beach Advisories

The beach water quality monitoring program is now closed for the 2016-17 season. Testing will begin again late spring in 2017.

Important Notes

While no sampling occurs along the St. Clair River, a sign advising of high bacterial levels following heavy rainfall has been permanently placed at:

  • Branton-Cundick Park
  • Brander Park

It should be noted that following a heavy rainfall, the water at area beaches may be temporarily polluted for up to 48 hours. Also, if the water has become cloudy due to wave activity, bacteria from the bottom may become suspended and increase the possibility of illness.

Sampling will continue and updates will follow as necessary.

Water quality information is available 24-hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week by calling the Beach Water Quality Information Line 519 383-3816, toll free 1-800-667-1839 ext. 3816.
