Two of Lake Minnetonka's public beaches have been closed in recent days due to elevated levels of bacteria.
Hennepin County Public Health ordered Wayzata's municipal beach closed last Thursday, and Summit Beach in Orono was closed on Tuesday. Both beaches were found to have elevated levels of E Coli.
Exactly what levels the bacteria were measured at is unclear, and inquiries submitted to Hennepin County had not been answered as of this posting.
It's likewise unclear if bacterial levels at other Lake Minnetonka beaches has been found to be abnormal.
Both northern Lake Minnetonka beaches will remain closed until further notice.
Patch will have updates to this story as they become available.
