Partial Body Contact Advisory Issued for 2 Grand Traverse Co. Beaches

A partial body contact advisory has been issued for two Grand Traverse County beaches after water sampling on Wednesday exceeded state water quality standards.

Water samples from Clinch Park and Traverse City Volleyball Beach exceeded Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) water quality standards. As a result the Grand Traverse County Health Department recommends that contact with water at these beaches remains below the waist.

Resampling is being conducted Thursday, with results expected Friday.
