1 Michigan beach closed due to bacteria level ahead of Memorial Day weekend

One Michigan beach is closed ahead this holiday weekend due to a high bacteria level.

The closure is at Saginaw Bay-Lake Huron-Dyer Road Beach located near US-23 in Tawas City, issued by the Central Michigan District Health Department.

Two beach closures earlier on Friday were announced include Lake St. Clair's H.C.M.A. Metropark Beach and Walter and Mary Burke Park Beach, both in Macomb County. By 2:30 p.m. both closures were lifted. 

The closures are according to the state's BeachGuard tracker which monitors water quality and other contaminants in and near water sources. The closures pertain to bacteria levels like E. coli.
