Half Moon Beach remains closed

By  | 

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) – A local beach remains closed because of high bacteria levels.

The Eau Claire City-County Health Department closed Half Moon Beach on Wednesday. The move was to protect people and keep them from potentially getting sick. The department re-checked the bacteria levels on Thursday, and decided to keep the beach closed.

The department typically closes beaches when weekly bacteria tests show the level of harmful bacteria is too high, or the area receives three or more inches of rain in 24 hours.
