BAY COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A Mid-Michigan beach is back open after water samples showed poor water quality.

Brissette Beach was initially closed on July 13 after tests revealed E. coli levels four times higher than normal. The Bay County Health Department reported bacteria levels from Monday, July 24 at Brissette Beach still exceeded the State of Michigan’s water quality standard.

The beach was reopened Thursday, July 27 after levels fell back into place.

The Bay County Health Department said the bacteria levels rose because of the excessive rain this month.
