Public Health Advisory: July 17th, 2024

Levels of E. coli have been found at a local beach in Iosco County. Levels of E. coli bacteria were found to exceed State standards for daily maximums for the water sampling conducted in the bathing beach waters at the East Tawas City Beach on 7.16.2024.

It is advised that all persons avoid any activity involving full body contact with these waters until sample results have indicated that E. coli levels have returned to acceptable standards Other beach related activities, as well as other beaches along the Lake Huron shoreline in Iosco County are not affected by this advisory.

Testing is ongoing now and will continue until levels do not exceed State standards. The increased levels of E.coli are believed to be from runoff waters containing E. coli. Contributing factors may include recent rainfalls and waterfowl droppings into the local waters, along with winds which may have concentrated the E.coli bacteria near affected beaches. Levels are expected to return to normal soon. Please call 989-362-6183 for results or for more information.
