Port Stanley Main Beach Showing Higher Levels of Bacteria

St. Thomas, Ontario, August 4, 2017 - Signs were put up today warning people not to swim in the water at Port Stanley Main Beach for now. Recent water samples showed levels of bacteria that are higher than acceptable for public health. These bacteria might cause a gastrointestinal illness if someone accidentally drinks the water. Symptoms of this kind of illness include abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, and/or diarrhea. These bacteria may also cause infections of the eye, ear, nose, and/or throat when people use the water.

The Municipality of Central Elgin regularly tests bacterial levels in the water at Port Stanley Main Beach. Once levels go back to normal, the signs will be removed. Members of the public, who are interested in this swimming advisory, should check the Health Unit’s website www.elginhealth.on.ca/beaches for updated beach results next week.
