Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Beach goers are advised not to go into the water at four Duluth beaches due to elevated E. coli levels.

The beaches include:
1. Clyde Avenue Boat Landing Beach in Smithville neighborhood on Clyde Avenue.

2. Minnesota Point Harbor Side/15th Street Beach on the harbor-side of Park Point in Duluth at 15th Street

3. Sky Harbor Parking Lot Beach on the harbor-side of Park Point in Duluth, at the end of Minnesota Avenue.

4. 20th Street / Hearding Island Canal Beach on the harbor-side of Park Point, at 20th Street.

The elevated E. coli levels could be due to fecal contamination. If you become sick after contact with water at these beaches, you are asked to call the Minnesota Health Department.

The water at these beaches will be resampled on Tuesday, July 10th.
