Great news for residents wanting to hit Missouri’s Beaches this Holiday Weekend.

All beaches are going to be open following weekly tests conducted by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

Officials at the DNR had closed beaches at Pomme De Terre and Harry S. Truman parks these past few weeks due to high e-coli levels following recent heavy rains.

However, test samples this week show all is good for swimming at all beaches in the state.
