The Village of Michiana beaches are monitored/sampled by the Berrien County Health Department weekly. There are certain levels that become unacceptable for human lake water contact. Upon the Health Department receiving the results of the water samples and unacceptable levels of e coli are found, the beaches are immediately re-sampled and monitored until the levels return to normal. The Village is advised of the high bacterial levels and at that time the beaches within our municipality are posted. Once the levels return to normal, the Village is once again notified by the Health Department, please check on line with the link below to know current reading. Please keep in mind the lake and creek can experience e-coli level changes at anytime. Anyone with a concern should refrain from bathing and drinking from those water sources.
