St. Andrews Beach advisory lifted

Updated:

GLYNN COUNTY, Ga. - The Glynn County Health Department has lifted the advisory for St. Andrews Beach. 

The advisory was issued on June 25 when a water quality test showed high levels of enterococci bacteria, which increases the risk of gastrointestinal illness in swimmers. 

The samples of the water taken subsequently show that the bacteria have dropped to recommended limits by the Environmental Protection Agency, according to a Glynn County Health Department news release.
