Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) put out 'no water contact recommendations' for several Twin Points Beaches on Tuesday due to elevated E. coli bacteria levels, but those recommendations have since been lifted Thursday.

On Tuesday there was also a 'no water contact recommendation' for the Leif Erikson Park Beach and the Harbor side/15th St. Beach on Park Point, but those recommendations were also lifted Thursday.

E. coli bacteria levels, identified Monday, could have indicated possible fecal contamination. However, the water quality on those beaches were re–tested Tuesday.
