MONROE (WWJ/AP) – The Monroe County Health Department has lifted earlier warnings that urged people against full body contact with water at four public beach areas along Lake Erie.

Advisories were lifted after testing this week at Estral Beach, Woodland Beach, Pointe Aux Peaux and Bolles Harbor revealed the water quality is within “acceptable standards,” The Monroe news reported.

Earlier this month, the department advised against swimming at the beaches due to high E. coli bacteria levels.

Three other beach areas in the county have passed E. coli tests so far this year. The beach water tests are done from mid-May through early September.
