Swim advisories at 3 beaches in Ocean, Monmouth
High bacteria levels revealed in Tuesday swim water tests at three Jersey Shore beaches mean re-testing today.
The bay beach in Long Beach Township, 25 Street bay beach in Barnegat Light, and the New York Avenue beach in Sea Girt produced test results that prompted the advisories by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
Bacteria levels that remain in excess of state standards following today’s testing at any of the three would mean closure until the contaminants subside.
No other beaches in Ocean, Monmouth or Atlantic Counties are under advisories.
