It's going to be a good weekend to enjoy the sun but there are three beaches you may not want to dive into.

Leif Erikson Park Beach, Park Point New Duluth Boat Club, and Hearding Island Canal Beach have all tested to have elevated E.Coli levels.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency tested the beaches Wednesday.

The agency believes the higher levels could be due to fecal contamination.

The agency tested the beaches again today and new results should be available sometime this weekend.

All other beaches in the area tested safe to enjoy.
