This is disappointing news, but the right call based on predictive modeling that is used. Safety first.

Samples have been gathered for testing, with results expected back on Friday. Check this page and the South Milwaukee Health Department Facebook page for updates.

I’m told the beach is cleaner overall than it has been for years, and was recently removed from an impaired waters list. These closures are rare. So let’s hope this is short lived.

South Shore Beach is also closed. Check out more coverage from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and Fox 6. And here is more on a “nowcast prediction.”

One more note: Ferch’s Beachside Grille is very open. Please make it a point to stop down and support this local business especially now that the beach is closed for a time.

How about a burger, custard, beer and live music on Friday night?
