Gull Lake Beach swim advisory lifted
A swim advisory for Gravenhurst’s Gull Lake Beach has been lifted.
The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit put the advisory in place on Monday after water tests showed elevated levels of E. coli. The provincial standard for the bacteria is 200 E. coli per 100mL. Gull Lake Beach came in at 532 per 100mL.
Swimming in such conditions could lead to minor skin, eye, ear, nose or throat infections or stomach illness. The town and the SMDHU are thanking the public for its patience and cooperation while the swim advisory was in place. Officials will continue to monitor the bacteria levels in the water and will share any changes with the public.
