As the Fourth of July approaches, the Genesee County Health Department has announced that all beaches in Genesee County are currently in compliance with state guidelines for bacterial concentrations at bathing beaches.

Exposure to any recreational waters can be a potential health risk. Gastrointestinal and dermatological illnesses have been associated with recreational water exposure. Rain and subsequent runoff can dramatically increase E. coli bacteria levels in lakes and other surface waters. Therefore, the Genesee County Health Department advises all beach patrons exercise due caution with total body contact in area surface waters after rain events.
