Pither’s Point beach re-opens

The Northwestern Health Unit has re-opened Pither’s Point beach after receiving water test results back Thursday morning.
The results indicated the water no longer contains the high level of harmful bacteria which resulted in the beach being declared “unsafe for swimming” last Thursday.
Weekly beach sampling will continue there throughout the rest of the summer, the health unit said.
But the Barwick and Morley beaches, west of Fort Frances, remain closed due to high bacteria levels found after testing two weeks ago.
