Florida Department Of Health Palm Beach County Reporting 9 Beaches With “Poor” Water Quality

UPDATE

The Florida Department of Health Palm Beach County tells Boca Post that all area beaches are now reporting “good” water quality with satisfactory levels of bacteria. A new sampling from Wednesday motivated the department to lift the health advisory they placed on many area beaches earlier this week.

Originally reported by Boca Post

BOCA RATON, FL – Boca Post (BocaPost.com) — Spanish River Beach is among the list of beaches Florida Department of Health Palm Beach County is reporting as having poor water quality on Tuesday, October 25th, 2022.

The following beaches were reported as having poor water quality and are under an advisory status:

  • Dubois Park (Jupiter)
  • Jupiter Beach Park (Jupiter)
  • Carlin Park (Jupiter)
  • Riviera Beach (Riviera Beach)
  • Phil Foster (Riviera Beach)
  • Ocean Inlet Park (Ocean Ridge)
  • Sandoway-Delray Bch (Delray Beach)
  • Spanish River (Boca Raton)
  • Lantana Beach (Lantana)

The best water quality is currently observed in Palm Beach Municipal in Palm Beach and Boynton Beach in Ocean Ridge.

The Florida Department of Health Palm Beach County has been conducting saltwater beach water quality sampling since August 5, 2002, as part of the Florida Healthy Beaches Monitoring Program. FDOH is presently sampling thirteen (13) beaches on a weekly basis.

The water samples are being examined for enterococci bacteria that normally inhabit the intestinal tract of humans and animals, and which may cause human disease, infections or rashes. The presence of enteric bacteria is an indication of fecal pollution, which may come from stormwater runoff, pets and wildlife, and human sewage.

The purpose of the Healthy Beaches Monitoring Program is to determine Florida’s beach water quality.
