More Duluth Beaches Added to Beach Advisory List

July 18, 2013 Updated Jul 18, 2013 at 10:04 AM CDT

Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Health Department has issued a beach advisory for two more Duluth beaches due to elevated E. coli levels.

Beach goers are being advised to stay out of the water at the Minnesota Point Harborside Beach and the Hearding Island Canal Beach, both in Canal Park in Duluth.

There is also still an advisory in place for the Sky Harbor Park Lot Beach in Park Point.

However, the advisory placed on the Flood Bay Beach in Two Harbors has been removed.

Health officials say the elevated E. coli levels could be due to fecal contamination.

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

The water at each of the beaches will be tested again later today.
