Investigation reports of an infection prevention and control lapse that was received through a complaint, referral (e.g., from a regulatory college), or through disease surveillance are available below.

Renfrew County and District Health Unit monitors the water quality at municipally owned or operated public bathing beaches. Monitoring is done weekly from June until August, and includes a visual inspection of beach conditions and testing for bacteria. Beaches with consistently good test results may be monitored once every two weeks.
Signs warning against swimming are posted when beach conditions pose a potential health risk to bathers. Most often the posting of a beach is due to high levels of bacteria in the water.
