Beach Water Quality Notice

By Diane Holm

January 21, 2015

Lee County, FL—The Florida Department of Health in Lee County is removing its notice about high bacteria levels at North Shore Park. Tests completed today for Enterococcus bacteria in water samples taken Tuesday, Jan. 20, 2015 showed safe levels for wading. This park is posted year-round as a non-swimming beach.

North Shore Park, 13001 N. Cleveland Ave, North Fort Myers is located at the foot of the US 41 bridge and used primarily by boaters and anglers.

Enterococcus bacteria normally inhabit the intestinal tract of humans and animals. The presence of an elevated concentration of these bacteria is an indicator of pollution, which may come from storm water runoff, pets, wildlife or sewage, and can cause illness.
