August 15, 2013 Updated Aug 15, 2013 at 12:39 PM CDT

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- A beach advisory has been removed for one Duluth beach, however a beach in Two Harbors remains on the list.

The water contact advisory has been removed for the 20th Street/Hearding Island Canal Beach on Park Point. However, an advisory remains in place for the Agate Bay Beach in Two Harbors.

The advisories were issued due to elevated E. coli bacteria that could indicate the presence of fecal contamination in the water.

The water at the Agate Bay Beach will be tested again later today.

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