Swimming off limits at Jersey Shore bay beach due to bacteria levelsPosted: Updated:
Swimming is off limits along the Barnegat Bay Beach in northern Long Beach Island for the third consecutive week due to excessive fecal bacteria.
Bacteria levels are prompting warnings by the Department of Environmental Protection at the 25th Street Bay Beach.
Water samples came back with more than four-and-a-half times the allowable limit of bacteria.
The same beach was closed for a day last week for the same reason.
No other New Jersey beaches are under a swimming advisory or closure. The state tests water quality at 188 ocean beaches, 20 bay beaches, and eight river beaches and issues advisories one day following an unacceptable bacteria level.
