SD&G – As people look to cool off from the heat, four area beaches are posted as unsafe for swimming.

They are at Charlottenburgh Park in South Glengarry, Glengarry Park off South Service Road, Lakeview Park in South Stormont and the L’Orignal Park Beach.

A beach that is posted is not closed but swimming in the water could lead to infection due to higher than normal levels of E. coli bacteria.

The exception is the Lakeview Park beach where the Township of South Stormont took the added step of closing the recreational amenity.
