The Thunder Bay District Health Unit issues beach advisories when recreational water contains high levels of E. coli.
Please note that an advisory is a warning to swimmers but it is not a beach closure. Beach closures are rare. A beach closure is issued when a catastrophic event happens or an immediate risk to health is present. This could be a sewage spill, a toxic chemical release or any visual blue-green algae in the water.
