Deerfield–Precautionary Beach Advisory LIFTED

Posted on 29 December 2019 by JLusk

The Florida Department of Health in Broward County has lifted the precautionary beach advisory it issued on Friday, Dec. 27.

The Health Department conducts regular water sampling along Broward’s coastline to test ocean water quality. Health officials determined that the sample taken in Deerfield Beach just south of the International Fishing Pier on Dec. 26, did not meet state requirements. The sample taken was at the threshold of being categorized as a “poor” sample result, which indicated the Enterococci bacteria. Tests performed yesterday, Dec. 30, showed a significant improvement, and the Health Department has, therefore, lifted the precautionary advisory. Enterococci is a bacteria that lives in hot, salty, or acidic environments and can aggravate the GI tract.
