|Service and Access Details|
|Description (Service)||Every year between May and September, Niagara Region tests 26 public beaches for levels of E Coli bacteria. When unsafe levels are present, the beaches may be posted unsafe or closed.
Beaches might also be unsafe due to floating debris, oil, excessive weed growth, bad odors and general turbidity.
Swimming in these waters could cause infections of the ear, eye, nose, throat and skin as well as cause diarrhea if that water is ingested.
