Healthy Beach Tips

Here are some handy Healthy Beaches tips to keep our beaches safe from E. Coli bacteria:

  • Don’t feed waterfowl; politely discourage others from doing so. Traverse City has adopted an ordinance prohibiting feeding waterfowl.
  • Place litter in trash cans.  Hear more about How You Can Help.
  • Clean up after Fido, and dispose pet waste in trash. Hear More.
  • Discourage children from playing in any algae, because it can stir up E. Coli bacteria hiding there.
  • Discharge boat and RV waste only at approved disposal sites.  Hear More.
  • Properly operate and maintain your septic system.
  • Properly dispose of automotive fluids and hazardous household waste during your community’s scheduled collection days; don’t dump them on the ground or into a storm drain

Please share these tips with your out-of-town guests. When we all chip in, our reward is Healthy Beaches!
