BEACH ADVISORY REMOVED North Shore Park bacteria tests below unsafe level

Lee County, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health in Lee County (DOH-Lee) is removing its advisory about high bacteria levels at North Shore Park. Tests completed today for Enterococcus bacteria in water samples taken March 31, 2016 showed safe levels for swimming and wading.

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.
