On Monday, September 3, 2018 the Park District was informed by the North Shore Water Reclamation District of a power outage and backup generator failure at their sanitary sewerage pumping facility located at Sunrise Beach. This caused a discharge into Lake Michigan consisting of sewage diluted by stormwater.  As a precautionary measure, NO ACCESS to the beach areas will be permitted until the cleanup process is complete.  The Park District is hopeful that the beach areas will re-open later this week.  Please know that the closures include all swimming areas and the dog beach.
