UPDATED: Water Quality Advisory LIFTED for Fenwick Island State Park Beach


UPDATED – Wednesday – 5pm – The swimming advisory has been lifted. For more information go to http://apps.dnrec.state.de.us/RecWater/


A water quality advisory has been issued for Fenwick Island State Park Beach following bacterial results which were above the recreational water quality standard. The bacteria most likely originates from wildlife sources and increased rainfall or waves can result in these indicator bacteria washing into the near shore waters. A water quality sample has been taken at Fenwick Island State Park Beach and the advisory will be lifted once indicator bacteria levels are within the recreational water limits.  Test samples should be back by 5pm Wednesday.
