Beach water quality

The County of Lambton takes water samples at public beaches each week from late May until early September to monitor beach water quality. These samples are tested for high levels of bacteria, excessive algae growth, or other contaminants that could cause negative health effects associated with swimming. Warnings are posted by the County when the levels of E. coli exceed the provincial guidelines.
