BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A Bay City beach that was closed on Thursday for poor water quality has now re-opened.

The Bay County Health Department closed the beach at the Bay City State Recreational Area on Thursday. 

"The results of surface water samples collected on Wednesday, June 14 exceeded the State of Michigan's water quality standard for full body contact recreational activities," a release said. 

The closure was lifted on Friday at 10 a.m. after new testing found that bacteria levels were once again within normal ranges.

For more information, please contact the Bay County Health Department at 989-895-4006.
