Gary's Lake Street Beach is closed until further notice, after "an unknown substance" was found in the water. Mayor Jerome Prince said in a statement Friday that he ordered the closure after consulting with city environmental experts and state regulatory officials.

He said the closure will be reviewed on a daily basis, as the city runs tests and monitors the situation. Marquette Beach will remain open, unless the substance is detected there.
