One of our member associations has made a request that all shoreline residents take steps to eradicate wire and other metals on the beach. In spite of organized beach clean-up events, we continue to experience some unique storms during these times of high waters that result in random debris on our properties on a frequent basis. It is also possible that some of us may not be as careful as we could be with what we bring to the beach. In the interest of safety and the beach we all cherish, let’s do our best in staying on top of this situation.
Testing for 2017 has started. Click here to see the results. As in 2016 Wildwood and Ridgeway are being tested. If you wish to see water quality test results for Houston Heights and St. Joseph go to the Huron County Health Unit website. This year ABCA is funding the testing from the monies allocated to them by Bluewater.
