HURON-KINLOSS, ON: 

A trip to the beach along the shores of Lake Huron is the ideal way to spend a summer day, but there are always risks when it comes to water.

The Municipal Innovation Council (MIC) saw this danger as an opportunity to develop Smart Beach and are pleased to invite the public to the launch of the pilot project at Kincardine’s Station Beach on May 25th, 2022 starting at 11:00 a.m.

The first-of-its-kind project will use technology to collect data for water level, wave action, traffic, and pedestrian usage. From this data, researchers will be able to provide beachgoers with highly accurate, real-time beach conditions.

Discover how the MIC is turning current data into safe swimming at smartbeach.ca and read more about the May 25th Smart Beach event on The MIC Blog.

Huron-Kinloss is one of 8 member municipalities in the MIC whose shared goal is to do business through collaboration, strategic thinking, and innovative solutions.
