Advisories dropped for North Shore beaches
Duluth News Tribune
08/15/03


The "no water contact" advisory sign came down Thursday at the Burlington Bay campground public beach in Two Harbors.

Water quality monitoring results indicated fecal coliform and E. coli bacteria levels were in the range considered safe for swimming, boating and other water contact.

All 34 public beach locations tested by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency's Beaches program were open Thursday.

The only Wisconsin beach on Lake Superior with any warning was the Port Wing West beach. A poor water quality sign was posted there Aug. 11.
