Water Advisory Lifted for North Fork of the St Lucie River
November 16, 2016
Enteric bacteria inhabit the intestinal tract of humans and animals and their presence in recreational waters is an indicator of fecal pollution. The presence of these bacteria may come from storm water runoff, pets, wildlife and human sewage.
The advisory had been in effect since May. These areas will continue to be tested every other week along with ocean beaches, South Beach Causeway, and JC Park.
