No-swimming advisories Issued for Beaches in Jupiter and Palm Beach

State health officials issued no-swimming advisories on Tuesday after finding high levels of bacteria in two beaches. According to the Florida Department of Health, Jupiter Beach Park and Midtown Beach in Palm Beach had poor quality water in their test samples.

There were high levels of certain bacterias associated with gastrointestinal problems and infected cuts. Factors such as the presence of wildlife, high surf from winds and tides and or heavy runoff following a heavy rainfall can cause elevated bacteria levels. The health department plans to test the waters again in the next few days. The advisory doesn’t close beaches. Beachgoers are cautioned to shower promptly after swimming.
