Beach Advisory Lifted on St. Simons Island

Update –>

The Glynn County Health Department has lifted the bacteria-related beach water advisory for for Massengale Park Beach, which is from Driftwood Drive to Cedar Street on St. Simons Island.

The advisory was issued on May 12, 2020 after routine water quality tests showed a high level of enterococci bacteria which increase the risk of gastrointestinal illness in swimmers.

Subsequent water samples showed that the bacteria levels had dropped below Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended limits. Therefore, the advisory has been lifted.
