Huron Co. Mich. (WNEM) – Jenks Park beach is back open after the Huron County Health Department closed it due to levels of E. coli.

The beach was closed Wednesday after test results revealed high levels of E. coli. After retesting water levels, the beach reopened on Thursday.

A composite sample of the three samples collected in three to six feet of water cannot exceed 300 E. Coli colonies per 100 ml of water for a beach to be considered safe for body contact.
