Now that the weather is starting to get a little nicer, you might be thinking of heading to the beach. Well, before you make those beach/travel plans, you should know that some water in Michigan is off-limits right now. The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has issued contamination advisories for several beaches throughout the state of Michigan.

In Muskegon, officials are warning people not to swim in Lake Michigan at Pere Marquette Park. No swimming is being allowed at three beaches in Berrien County beaches due to the high levels of E. coli. Those beaches include Warren Dunes, Weko Beach and Cherry Beach. Other areas on the contamination advisory list include Lake St. Clair-St. Clair Shores Memorial Park Beach, Reed Lake in Oakland County and Saginaw Bay-Lake Huron- Foster Road Beach.
