lake erie beach 2The Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit reopened all public beaches in the municipality late Thursday.

The unit had placed a ban at the beaches on Lake Erie and Mitchell’s Bay Tuesday when an algae bloom turned the water just offshore into what resembled green soup. A bloom of cyanobacteria, which releases harmful toxins, was the cause.

Mitchell’s Bay beach reopened late Wednesday, while beaches on Lake Erie reopened a day later.
