The Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County found elevated levels of bacteria and have place a swimming advisory at the following beach sites:

  • Crandon North
  • Crandon South

Samples of beach water quality collected at Crandon North and Crandon South beach sites did not meet the Federal and State recommended recreational water quality standard for enterococci.

The advisory issued recommends not swimming at these locations at this time. The results of the sampling indicate that water contact may pose an increased risk of illness, particularly for susceptible individuals.

For more information, please visit the Florida Healthy Beaches Program and select “Beach Water Quality” from the Environmental Health Topics List.
