Florida Department of Health in Lee County
Lee County, Fla. – The Florida Department of Health in Lee County (DOH-Lee) is removing its advisory about high bacteria levels at Yacht Club Beach, Cape Coral. Tests completed today for Enterococcus bacteria in water samples taken April 23, 2018 showed levels under the maximum contaminant level.
Yacht Club Beach is located at 5819 Driftwood Parkway, Cape Coral 33904.
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.
Elevated levels of Enterococcus bacteria have been associated with an increased risk of swimming-associated gastroenteritis illness (diarrhea and abdominal pain).
For more information call (239) 274-2200.
