BURLINGTON, Vt. — Two beaches on Lake Champlain have been closed to swimming after testing turned up high levels of E. coli bacteria.

North Beach and Leddy Park Beach in Burlington were closed to swimmers on Tuesday and Wednesday because of high bacteria levels.

Officials told WPTZ-TV that the beaches will remain closed until the E. coli drops to normal levels. New test results were expected today.

Even though the beaches were closed to swimming, a number of people still went to the beaches Wednesday to lounge in the sand, have a cookout and take walks.
