Public Health Advisory issued for Saginaw River

Posted: Updated:
BAY CITY, MI (WNEM) -

The Bay County Health Department issued a Public Health Advisory for the Saginaw River on Wednesday.

Water samples collected from the river in Bay City have exceeded Michigan's water quality standard and that has prompted the advisory.

The Bay County Health Department asks residents engaging in recreational activities to refrain from partial body contact with water from the river until further notice.

Officials say the advisory will be lifted when bacteriological levels comply with Michigan's water quality standards.
