Above Waist Contact Not Advised for Suttons Bay Marina, Park Due to E. coli Levels

Samples taken at two Leelanau County beaches in July 2 exceed full body contact levels of E. coli in the water. 

The Benzie-Leelanau District Health Department says contact above the waist is not advised at Suttons Bay Marina and Suttons Bay Park. 

There are yellow warning signs posted at those locations warning the water is at a Level 2 for E. coli. 

These areas will be re-sampled today and a report will be available Friday.
