BEACH CLOSED – until further notice


A water sample collected from the beach within the past 24 hours indicates bacteria levels over the recreational bathing standard.

THE BEACH IS CLOSED for swimming and bathing activities and additional samples have been collected. Resample results will be available tomorrow.

If the resample is below the recreational bathing water quality standard, the advisory will be removed. If the resample is above the water quality bacteria standard, the beach will remain CLOSED.

You may review all test results by calling the Atlantic County Health Department at 609-645-5971.

Bacteria levels change with the weather, tides and currents. They are usually highest near storm water pipes, especially during and after rainfall.

You can reduce your risk of illness by avoiding contact with water in or near storm water pipes.
