LEE COUNTY, Fla.- The Florida Department of Health in Lee County is lifting its advisory on Cape Coral Yacht Club Beach. Water samples taken Monday indicate enterococcus bacteria concentrations have returned to safe levels for swimming.
Enterococcus bacteria normally inhabit the intestinal tract of humans and animals. The presence of an elevated concentration of these bacteria is an indicator of pollution, which may come from storm water runoff, pets, wildlife or sewage.
The next routine beach water sampling of 13 public beaches will be taken on Monday, July 22, 2013 with results available 24 hours later.
