MIAMI (AP) - It's not safe to swim in Biscayne Bay after a ruptured main is sending 250,000 gallons of sewage into the water.
    
The swimming advisory was issued Tuesday for the area in northeast Miami-Dade County.
    
The Miami Herald (hrld.us/GzGJ2z ) reports the advisory also includes the Intracoastal from William Lehman Causeway in Aventura south to Haulover Inlet. Other affected areas include: Maule Lake, Oleta River State Park and Dumbfoundling Bay.
