Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Beach goers are advised not to go into the water at three Duluth beaches due to elevated E. coli levels.

The beaches include:

1. Minnesota Point Harbor Side/15th Street Beach on the harbor-side of Park Point in Duluth at 15th Street.
2. 20th Street / Hearding Island Canal Beach on the harbor-side of Park Point, at 20th Street.
3. Sky Harbor Parking Lot Beach on the harbor-side of Park Point in Duluth, at the end of Minnesota Avenue.

The elevated levels of E. coli could be due to the presence of fecal contamination.

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

Water at each of these beaches will be re-sampled on Monday, July 9th for E. coli levels.
