Health Advisories Issued for Local Waters

Six stations were sampled this week by the Florida Department of Health – all six had high levels of bacteria. Health advisories were issued for all. This is due to excessive rain during Hurricane Nate. Those bodies of water are:

Bayou Texar

Bayou Chico

Bayou Grande

Big Lagoon State Park

Quietwater Beach

Sanders Beach

No swimming posted due to high levels of bacteria.
