High levels of bacteria in Flesherton Pond Public Beach may pose a risk to your health, swim at your own risk. That is according to the results of water samples collected May 30, 2017.
Municipal public swimming areas are tested weekly. Sites that demonstrate high levels of bacteria are posted as soon as results are received on Friday of each week.
This warning will be in effect at Flesherton Pond Public Beach until sample results show acceptable levels of bacteria as per Provincial standards.
Although the pond remains open, it is highly recommended that no-one swims in the pond while this warning is in effect and swimmers shall do so at their own risk.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.
South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
