The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and municipal and community authority partners monitor select public bathing beaches from June to August each year. When advisories are posted for a beach, they will remain in effect until follow-up testing of the water shows that the bacterial contamination is gone. Advisories may remain in effect after several samples.
