A sewage spill has closed a beach near Gimli, Man.
Officials warn the spill is affecting local water quality and has raised E. coli levels.
Beach closure signs were posted Wednesday, warning that neither people nor pets should enter the water at the beach until water testing meets recreational water quality levels.
Officials say water levels are being reduced in the ditch where the line was damaged so it can be either repaired or replaced.
The province says testing is being done at other beaches in the area, but so far, no other closures have been announced.
