CLEVELAND – Today’s warm temperatures and sunny skies may have northeast Ohioans heading for a beach. But because of the extremely rainy weather we’ve been experiencing, the water off of some of the most popular beaches and swimming areas is not healthy to swim in.
According to the Ohio Department of Health, if a beach has a water advisory posting it means the level of bad bacteria in the water has reached unsafe levels and could make you sick. Children, the elderly and those in ill health or weakened immune systems are advised not to swim.
Some beaches in our area with advisories posted are:
In Cuyahoga County:
- Arcadia Beach
- Edgecliff Beach
- Clifton Beach
In Lake County:
- Fairport Harbor
In Erie County:
- Cedar Point Chausee
- Vermillion River East and West
- Sawmill Creek
- Camp Perry
There are 43 beaches and swimming areas under advisories today. Click here to read the entire Beach Guard list as posted by the Ohio Department of Health.
