Swimming advisory issued Tuesday for Edgewater Beach

CLEVELAND - The Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District has issued a swimming advisory for Edgewater Beach in Cleveland on Tuesday.

Due to Monday evening's heavy storms, there was a "combined sewer overflow event" at the beach just before midnight. The overflow discharged raw sewage and storm water into the lake.

Beachgoers - especially children, the elderly and anyone with poor health - are being advised to avoid any contact with the water or any debris on the beach itself.

The last combined sewer overflow at Edgewater was in June of 2015.
