A swim advisory remains in place for Centennial Beach, based on a recommendation from the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.
The recommendation is based on beach-water resamples collected on August 8. The beaches will be sampled again on Monday, August 12, with results due the following day. More information on beach advisories is available here.
According to the health unit, water quality can change daily or even hourly depending on the weather and other conditions. Swimmers are encouraged to make smart decisions about beach-water quality before swimming.
Water quality at designated public beaches is tested regularly for bacteria. However, due to the delay in receiving lab results, beachgoers cannot rely on only lab results to know if it is safe to swim. Swimmers are advised to consider a number of factors before going in the water, such as rain, wind, the presence of waterfowl, wet sand and shallow water.
