Beaches open

It’s safe to swim now.
Late last week, the Town of Fort Frances re-opened its beaches at the Point Park and Sunny Cove, which had been closed since mid-June due to the high water and safety concerns over current and debris.

Public health inspector Brian Norris said the Northwestern Health Unit resumed testing the waters at the Point for bacteria such as E. coli last week and found it is okay for the public to swim there.
He noted all other public beaches in the district that the health unit tests currently are open.
But Hannam Park beach in Rainy River remains under water.
