If you were planning on going swimming at three specific Missouri state beaches sometime soon, you may want to make other plans.
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources says "bacteria levels higher than those recommended for waters used for swimming" are the reason behind the temporary closing of beaches at:
- Grand Glaize Beach, also known as Public Beach #2, at Lake of the Ozarks State Park
- Public beaches at Mark Twain State Park
- Public beaches at Harry S Truman State Park
