27 Juillet 2017

NEW JERSEY, The New Jersey State Department of Environmental Protection released an advisory Tuesday, closing three beaches and placing 31 under advisory for unacceptable levels of enterococcus.

Of the 217 beaches monitored by the New Jersey Cooperative Coastal Monitoring, advisories were issued for just five beaches after new testing on Wednesday.

A number of South Jersey beaches are closed to swimmers after authorities have discovered elevated bacteria levels in the water. Officials are blaming the high poop content on recent rain storms. A beach patrol lieutenant said bacteria levels were already going down in the afternoon, so folks are hopeful.

"Rainfall carries bacteria, typically from animal droppings, into stormwater collection systems that usually discharge into a body of water", a DEP spokesperson said.

A swimming advisory of potentially unhealthy water conditions is issued if a water sample at a bathing beach has an amount of bacteria that exceeds the state standard.
