Daytona Beach, FL – A swim advisory issued over the Memorial Day weekend for one of the most popular tourist spots in Daytona Beach has been lifted.
The Florida Department of Health in Volusia County says enterococci bacterial levels in the ocean water are safe again in the Main Street area.
“Additional ocean water samples were taken Tuesday,” said FDOH-VC spokeswoman Holly Smith. “The laboratory analysis received today show the water has returned to acceptable levels.
The advisory was issued Saturday after regular testing done through the county’s Healthy Beaches Program showed elevated levels of enterococci, a bacteria normally found in bird feces.
