No-contact advisories lifted for North Shore beaches
The Minnesota Department of Health today lifted water-contact-not-recommended advisories for two North Shore beaches.
The department lifted the advisories for Kadunce Creek and Agate Bay beaches after water tests found that levels of fecal-indicator bacteria have returned to acceptable levels.
Kadunce Creek Beach is at Kadunce Creek picnic area north of Grand Marais. Agate Bay Beach is in Two Harbors.
Earlier advisories for two beaches in Duluth remain in effect. Those beaches are 20th Street/Hearding Island Canal Beach and the Sky Harbor Parking Lot Beach, both located on the harbor side of Park Point.
Anyone who becomes ill after contact with beach water is asked to contact the Minnesota Department of Health at (877) 366-3455.
