Learn why the beaches are closed
Duluth’s beaches are occasionally closed for public safety when coliform bacteria are detected in the water around the beach. Recently, several studies out of the University of Minnesota Duluth have proved that the majority of the bacteria is from the thousands of geese, ducks, and sea gulls that live in the harbor, not from human waste.
