Beach advisory withdrawn for state park

Beach advisory withdrawn for state park

Update:

The beach advisory previously issued on July 25 is withdrawn.

That advisory was issued after water samples collected were found to have elevated levels of the Enterococcus bacteria. The U.S. Enviromental Protection Agency considers anything over 104 colonies to be unsafe. At present the levels are considered safe.

Lamar University continues to test and monitor this water and based upon their results, further advisories will be issued as necessary.
