Will You Swim at New Baltimore Beach After E. Coli Closure?
Swimming is currently allowed after water samples tested safe for the public.
Water samples taken after increased E. Coli levels were found late last week have since been tested safe for swimming in New Baltimore.
The beach at Burke Park reopened this week when samples showed a huge drop in E. Coli levels. The bacteria peaked at more than 2,200 E. coli cells per 100 milliliters of water Thursday--leading to a multi-day closure beginning Friday.
So far this week, the levels stayed under the safety requirement of 300 cells per 100 milliliters of water, according to the Macomb County Health Department.
