2 beaches closed because of E. coli

Posted: Updated:
GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Two beaches in Genesee County have been closed because of high levels of E. coli.

The Genesee County Health Department is advising against swimming in Kelly Lake in Burton and Clover Beach in Linden after elevated levels of the bacteria were found.

Rain and subsequent runoff can dramatically increase E. coli bacteria levels in lakes and other surface waters. Therefore, the Genesee County Health Department is advising that all beach patrons exercise due caution with total body contact in area surface waters after rain events.
