Description: Recreational Water Advisory
Location: North Indian River Inlet Beach
Start Date: 07/02/2019
Start Time: 14:30
End Date: 07/03/2019
End Time: 14:30 Comments: A water quality advisory has been issued for North Indian River Inlet Beach following bacterial results which were above the recreational water quality standard. These bacteria most likely originate from wildlife sources and increased rainfall, waves or wildlife feeding near the surf (shorebirds, marine mammals or other warm blooded animals) can result in these indicator bacteria washing into the near shore waters. A water quality sample has been taken at North Indian River Inlet Beach and the advisory will be lifted once indicator bacteria levels are within the recreational water limits.
