Dirty beaches reported in Northeast Ohio

It's shaping up to be a hot weekend, but there are some places where you may not want to cool off.

19 Action News has discovered some dirty beaches in Northeast Ohio.

This, after looking into records which showed average levels of bacteria, specifically e-coli, at Cleveland area beaches this summer with occasional spikes.

Just recently, Villa Angela State Park was named among the country's dirtiest beaches.

19 Action News asked residents if they were concerned about bacteria levels and one responded "sure I would be concerned.  I have three small kids, don't want them to be swimming in something they could get sick out of."

The good news is that the beaches are being monitored. Those being monitored are heavily influenced by rainfall. So the drier the weather, more often than not, the better the beaches.

Water levels are tested and reported daily, and since it hasn't rained in a couple of days, it's safe to swim across the board Thursday.
