Beach Advisories Widespread After Heavy Rain In The Area

by

DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - Thanks to the heavy rain over much of the area on Sunday night, an unusually high number of beach advisories have been issued by the Minnesota Department of Health.  The rain tends to wash contaminants from nearby areas into the lake.  "Water Contact Not Recommended" advisories are now up at the Grand Marais Campground beach, the Twin Points Public Access beach at Gooseberry Falls, the Agate Bay beach in Two Harbors, the Bluebird Landing Beach north of Duluth on Scenic Highway 61, Brighton Beach in Gitche Gummi Park, the Lester River Beach, the 42nd Avenue East Beach, the Lakewalk Beach below Lake Place Park, Leif Erickson Park Beach, the Minnesota Point Harborside 15th Street Beach, the Sky Harbor Parking Lot Beach on the harbor side of Park Point and the Clyde Avenue Boat Landing Beach.  Water at those locations, sampled on Monday, showed elevated levels of E. coli bacteria that indicates the possible presence of fecal contamination.  The beaches will be re-sampled on Tuesday and updated information can be found at MNBeaches.org
