Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- As of Tuesday, there were four Duluth locations added to a 'No Water Contact' recommendation issued by the Minnesota Department of Health. As of Wednesday, three of those beaches have been removed.

The Lakewalk East and 16th Avenue East Beach, the 42nd Avenue East Beach and the Park Point Beach House has been removed from the 'no contact advisory' after fecal indicator bacteria levels returned to acceptable levels.

The Sky Harbor Parking Lot Beach remains under a 'no contact advisory' because elevated E. coli bacteria levels identified from samples collected on Monday indicate the possible presence of fecal contamination.
