BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2022 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The following advisory was issued just before 6 p.m. Tuesday:

The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) of Palm Beach County conducts regular beach water quality sampling and has posted a Health Advisory for Spanish River Park in Boca Raton. A recent sampling showed elevated bacterial levels in the water. As a precaution, swimming at Spanish River Park beach is prohibited until further notice.

FDOH found sample levels to be greater than 156 colonies per 100 millimeters of marine water putting Spanish River Park beach in the poor range, which indicates a potential health risk to the bathing public. 

For the safety of our residents and visitors, swimming is prohibited until further notice; however, the park and beach will remain open.  Additional water samples will be taken and it is hoped that full use of the beach may resume within the next 24 to 48 hours.
