Red Flag Swimming

A red flag at Grand Haven State Park warns visitors not to go into the water.

Michigan Department of Natural Resources Director Dan Eichinger plans to sign an order that will ban swimming on days with hazardous conditions at state parks in the near future.

On Thursday, the DNR Natural Resources Commission gave its informal approval to the order, which the DNR director has authority to implement at the state agency’s own discretion under Michigan law.
