OCEAN COUNTY - Swimming advisories have been lifted at several beaches in Ocean County that had been closed after tests showed high levels of bacteria.

A second round of water samples came back within healthy levels at Beachwood Beach, two beaches in Pine Beach, and Wildwood Beach in Ocean Gate.

Swimmers were warned Tuesday and Wednesday that the water had tested four and five times the amount deemed acceptable by health officials.

It takes two consecutive bad tests to close the beaches.
