Two Recreational Water Advisories Issued For Rehoboth Beach
DNREC … Description: Recreational Water Advisory
Location: Rehoboth-Rehoboth Ave Beach & Rehoboth-Virginia Ave Beach
Comments: A water quality advisory has been issued for Rehoboth-Rehoboth Ave 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 Rehoboth-Rehoboth Ave Beach and the advisory will be lifted once indicator bacteria levels are within the recreational water limits.
