On Friday morning, the county discovered higher than normal levels of fecal bacteria in the water around Ramsey Creek Beach, and decided to put in place a ‘no swim advisory’ – essentially shutting the beach down.
After yesterdays testing, bacteria levels have dramatically decreased to a level that is now deemed safe for swimmers.
Officials will officially re-open the beach to swimmers this morning (7/24) at 10 a.m.
Here are the current results from the water testings around the beach.
