Questions about water quality? Main Street Vermilion and our Hot Diggity Dog Day Committee closely follow the Erie County Health Department testing for E-coli and harmful algae and bacteria on Main Street Beach. The health and safety of all our guests on the beach (both you and those with four legs) is very important and we will be staying on top of this up until the day of the event. In the meantime, you can access beach conditions and testing results on either of these two website: Erie County Health Department and Ohio Beach Guard. You can also follow the presence of any harmful algae bloom in Lake Erie here. You can also visit the Ohio Department of Health for more Harmful Algal Bloom information.

In short, according to the Erie County Health Department there has been no visible presence and no dog related injuries or illnesses reported that are related to algae blooms in Vermilion. If you have further questions call Craig Ward at the Erie County Health Department at 419.626.5623 x118.A look back at Hot Diggity Dog Day 2018.
