MILWAUKEE - With the hot weather ahead, you might be disappointed if you're planning to head to the beach. 

Concern about the water has forced health officials to close some Milwaukee area beaches.

As Today's TMJ4's Todd Hicks report,  most beach goers Saturday had no idea there was a risk of elevated levels of ecoli lurking in the water.

Elevated bacteria levels have shut down South Shore Beach in Milwaukee.  Health warnings have also gone up at a number of other beaches in Kenosha and Milwaukee counties.
