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.
