Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Beach goers are advised not to enter the water at four Northland beaches due to elevated E. coli bacteria.

Water contact is not advised at the following beaches:
1. Kadunce Creek Beach at Kadunce Creek picnic area north of Grand Marais, on the north-west side of the Kadunce Creek mouth.

2. Agate Bay Beach in Two Harbors.

3. 20th Street / Hearding Island Canal Beach on the harbor-side of Park Point, at 20th Street.

4. Sky Harbor Parking Lot Beach on the harbor-side of Park Point in Duluth, at the end of Minnesota Avenue.

The elevated E. coli bacteria levels could be due to fecal contamination around the beaches.

If you become sick after contact with the water at these beaches, please call the Minnesota Health Department.

Water samples will be taken again at these beaches on July 31st.
