Swim at your own risk.
It may feel like summer has just began in earnest, but lifeguards and public health water testers will wrap up their season at city beaches Sunday.
Lifeguards are on-duty and Ottawa Public Health tests water daily from June 17 to Aug. 27 at Petrie Island, Mooney’s Bay, Westboro and Britannia beaches. As of Friday, Mooney’s Bay, Brittania and Westboro were cleared for safe swimming, while Petrie Island’s East Bay and river beaches were red-flagged.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/sunday-is-last-day-for-lifeguards-water-tests-at-city-beaches
