East Algoma OPP is reminding the public that launching watercrafts via ATVs and 4x4s is not allowed on Beech Beach and in Jocelyn Township.

Officers received a call regarding residents accessing the beach on Tuesday (June 8).

OPP Constable Phil Young says officers are also concerned with the safety issue for beachgoers.

He says boaters and jet-ski/sea-doo users who are boating in and through swimming areas, and who create a safety issue for swimmers, can be fined $430. Young also added no one under 16 can operate personal watercraft without a licence.

Underage users can be fined $125 while the owner could be fined $305.
