Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- A beach advisory has been lifted for two Duluth beaches after fecal bacteria returned to safer levels.
Beach goers are no longer advised to stay out of the water at the Minnesota Point Harborside/15th Street Beach and the Sky Harbor Parking Lot Beach.
However, an advisory remains in place at the 20th Street/Hearding Island Canal Beach on Park Point in Duluth.
Water samples from the beach indicated elevated levels of E. coli bacteria, possibly due to fecal contamination.
Beach goers are advised to stay out of the water at this beach.
If you become sick after coming into contact with the water at the Hearding Island Canal Beach, you are asked to call the Minnesota Health Department.
The water at the beach will be resampled on September 6.
