• Beach Advisory lifted for Massengale Park Beach on St. Simons Island


    ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Fla. - The Glynn County Health Department has lifted the advisory for Massengale Park Beach (which is from Driftwood Drive to Cedar Street on St. Simons Island.)

    The advisory was issued on Tuesday, May 21 after routine water quality tests showed a high level of enterococci bacteria which increase the risk of gastrointestinal illness in swimmers.


    Additional water samples showed that the bacteria levels had dropped below Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended limits. Therefore, the advisory has been lifted, according to the Glynn County Health Department.
