New Jersey Beaches Closed for High Levels of Bacteria in Water
East coasters, you may want to rethink your trip to the Jersey shore this weekend.
Eight New Jersey beaches have been closed and more than a dozen others are on notice after test results confirmed high levels of bacteria in the water. The advisories earlier this week, marking the most serious outbreak of bacteria for the state's beaches this summer. The unusually high levels are likely to do the heavy rainfall in the area over the past several days.
The state Department of Environmental Protection issues an advisory when the presence of entercocci exceeds the standard for water samples. This type of bacteria is found in animal and human feces, and can cause abdominal and urinary tract infections.
Beach closures apply to water-related activities like swimming and wading, while sunbathing and walking on the sand are considered safe.
