Beach advisories posted

The Minnesota Department of Health has placed advisories for dozens of Lake Superior beaches.

Affected are Split Rock River Beach at the mouth of Split Rock River, Twin Points Public Access Beach north of Gooseberry Falls State Park and four Two Harbors area beaches as well as several in the Duluth area.

No cook County beaches are involved.

Water contact is not recommended for the beaches due to elevated E. coli bacteria levels found in samples taken on June 18.  Re-sampling will take place today.
