Health Department removes public swimming advisory

Posted

The Alabama Department of Public Health has lifted the swimming advisory issued on Wednesday, June 20, for the waters of Mobile Bay at the Orange Street Pier. Based on a water sample collected Thursday, swimming water quality at the site is again good, with enterococci levels below the EPA threshold of 104 colonies per 100 milliliters.

The Alabama Department of Public Health and the Alabama Department of Environmental Management operate the bacteriological water quality monitoring and notification program under a grant from the EPA’s BEACH Act Program. Currently, there are no swimming advisories in effect.

Additional information is available on the EPA website entitled “Beach Watch” at www.epa.gov/ost/beaches.
