Swim advisory to remain in effect for River Park Marina

Health officials are reporting that the no swim advisory issued for River Park Marina-North Fork will remain in effect due to the continued high levels of bacteria found in the water.

The Florida Department of Health says they have detected extremely high levels of enteric bacteria which is typically found in the intestinal tracts of both animals and humans in the water ways. Officials say the presence of enteric bacteria indicates that there is fecal pollution in the water.

The advisory was initially put into effect on June 4th but health officials say the advisory will remain in effect until bacteria levels return to normal.

The latest samples of water were collected on July 13th and another sample is set to be conducted on July 27th.

Results from that sample will be available on July 3oth.
