Cook County beach advisories lifted

Wed, 06/04/2014 - 4:32pm

Two Cook County beaches received “no water contact” advisories from the Minnesota Department of Health this week. When the water at the beaches--Paradise Beach and Durfee Creek Beach--were retested on June 3, the bacterial levels had returned to acceptable levels.

Water samples collected on June 2, 2014 at Paradise Beach had bacteria levels that indicate possible fecal contamination. The water at the beach will be tested again today.

The Durfee Creek Area Beach also showed elevated levels of E.coli bacteria from the test on June 2. The beach will also be retested today.

Other beaches that received advisories on June 2 include Agate Bay, Burlington Bay and French River Beaches in Two Harbors and the 20th Street/Hearding Island Canal Beach and the Lakewalk Beach in Duluth. All of those no-contact advisories were removed after retesting except for the French River beach. That advisory remains in place.

Beach monitoring is conducted at the following beaches in Cook County:  Chicago Bay boat launch in Hovland; Paradise Beach, Kadunce Creek, Durfee Creek in Colvill; Old Shore Road, Harbor Park in Grand Marais, Recreation Park campground in Grand Marais, Cutface Creek Wayside Rest; Temperance River State Park, Schroeder Town Park and Sugarloaf Cove Beach in Schroeder. At press time, all had “water contact acceptable” ratings.

A number of factors, such as dog, geese and other wildlife feces, dirty diapers, failing septic systems and sewer line breaks and overflows, can contribute to higher levels of illness-causing bacteria.
