Several Michigan beaches are closed due to high bacteria levels heading into Labor Day weekend.
According to the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, there are currently 10 closures and advisories in Michigan. Most of them are in the Lower Peninsula.
Here's the list of beach closures:
|Reed Lake - Reed Lake Property Owners||Oakland|
|White Lake - Maple Park||Muskegon|
|Lake Superior - Lighthouse Overlook||Keweenaw|
|Lake Superior - Copper Harbor- West Lagoon||Keweenaw|

|Silver Lake - City Park Beach||Genesee|

Much of the increase in bacteria levels are due to storm water runoff, according to the DEQ, but some have unknown sources.
