Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A beach advisory has been removed for four Duluth beaches, however one No Water Contact advisory is still in place.

A beach advisory has been removed for the following beaches:
- Brighton Beach located in Duluth in Gitche Gummi Park

- Leif Erikson Park Beach located in Duluth, below Leif Erikson Park

- Franklin Park / 13th Street South Beach located on the lakeside of Park Point in Duluth at 13th Street.

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

A No Water Contact Recommendation is still in place for the 20th Street / Hearding Island Canal Beach located on the harbor-side of Park Point, at 20th Street due to elevated E. coli bacteria.

The elevated E. coli levels could be due to the presence of fecal contamination. The water at that beach will be tested again later today.

If you become sick after coming into contact with water at any Minnesota beach, you are asked to call the Minnesota Health Department.
