OSAGE BEACH, Mo. – Grand Glaize Beach is open to the public after the Missouri Department of Natural Resources lifted a swimming advisory.

The advisory was issued last week after elevated levels of E. coli were detected during routine testing.

Recent tests taken on June 25 indicated the E. coli levels had decreased and were not high enough to merit a swimming advisory.

E. coli and other bacteria can be found in naturally-occurring levels in most bodies of water. Elevated bacteria levels can be seen after heavy rains, but there can be other sources that can create a health risk.
