UPDATE: Grand River partial body contact advisory to remain in effect

By  | 

IONIA COUNTY, MI (WILX) -- An update to a story we've been following--the partial body contact advisory for the grand river in Portland -- will remain in effect.

The Ionia County Health Department posted that decision on its Facebook page Wednesday.

It comes after more samples were tested from the river after E. Coli was found a couple of weeks ago.

Partial body contact means activities like kayaking and fishing are okay, but people should not go in the water.

The next round of sampling is scheduled for next week.
