Health Advisory sign

Advisory Signs

Beach advisory signs are posted when sample analysis results indicate bacteria levels above the established standard, signifying the possible presence of disease-causing organisms. These advisories are recommendations to the public to avoid water contact at the beach until further analyses reveal safe conditions.

Advisory signs are removed when sample analysis results return to below the established standard, and the 5-sample geometric mean levels are acceptable.
