The province has lifted the swimming ban that was put in place at Gimli Beach, Willow Island Beach, Loni Beach and South Beach on Thursday, July 26, 2018.
The restrictions on entering the water were issued after a pipe was damaged on July 24, 2018, and raw sewage had potentially entered a drainage pipe and then flowed to Lake Winnipeg.
The medical officer of health for Interlake Eastern RHA advises people can now enter the water at Gimli Beach, Willow Island Beach, Loni Beach and South Beach. Regular monitoring will continue.
