FERRYSBURG, Mich. — The public is advised to stay away from the water at a Ferrysburg beach after tests revealed high levels of E. coli.

The Ottawa County Department of Public Health (OCDPH) says everyone should avoid touching the water at North Beach Park until the "no body contact" advisory is lifted.

Health officials speculate the E. coli levels are linked to nearby dredging operations.

Those with questions are encouraged to connect with OCDPH by calling 616-393-5645.
