The Huron County Health Unit is no longer monitoring water quality on Lake Huron beaches for the rest of the summer.

Public Health Manager Jean-Guy Albert explains the testing of water quality is a summer position and the students who did that are now back at university.

Albert says swimmers concerned about things like e-coli levels can follow the recommendations on their website which are also posted on all of the permanent signs on the beaches.

They state that e-coli levels are likely to be higher after a heavy rain.  And if an adult, standing waist deep in water, cannot see their feet, Albert recommends people should not swim in the lake.
