    Monday, Columbia Beach Park in Bay Village was listed as having high bacteria levels, and Tuesday, the Lake Shore Park beach in Ashtabula Township and Arcadia Beach in Euclid were also listed as such, with the advisories ongoing. Wednesday, Community Park Beach in Lorain was also added.

    According to state sampling results, the bacteria found in the water was E. coli.

    The Department of Health lists an advisory when there’s a chance the level of bacteria can make a person sick. Those particularly at risk are older people, kids and folks with pre-existing conditions.

    Over the past week, other beach advisories have been in place due to rip tides and rough waters.
