Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A No Water Contact advisory has been removed for two Northland beaches after fecal bacteria returned to an acceptable level.

The following beaches have been removed from the beach advisory list:
- Burlington Bay Beach located in Two Harbors

- Minnesota Point Harborside / 15th Street Beach located on the harbor-side of Park Point in Duluth at 15th Street.

Health officials say the water tested at both beaches found that bacteria levels and averages have returned to acceptable levels.
