You might want to check online before heading to your favorite beaches this holiday, especially if you plan on going to beaches in Grand Traverse or Wayne County.

Fifteen Michigan beaches are either closed or are under advisories because of bacterial contamination this Labor Day weekend.

Most of the beaches that are closed are along the northern shore of Lake Michigan or on Lake Huron. But some beaches in the U.P. are also under advisories.

You can find a full list of the beaches that are closed on the state Department of Environmental Quality’s "Beach Guard" website.
