The Florida Department of Health in Lee County has removed its advisory about high bacteria levels at Blind Pass Beach. Tests completed Tuesday for Enterococcus bacteria in water samples taken Nov. 2 showed safe levels for swimming and wading.
This beach park is at – 6497 Sanibel-Captiva Road, Sanibel Island.
Enterococcus bacteria normally inhabit the intestinal tract of humans and animals. The presence of an elevated concentration of these bacteria is an indicator of pollution, which may come from storm water runoff, pets, wildlife or sewage.
