Beach Advisories Lifted for Glynn Beaches

Jan 15, 2021 | , ,

GLYNN COUNTY – The Glynn County Health Department has lifted the advisories for East Beach Old Coast Guard Station (10th Street to Driftwood Drive) and Fifth Street Crossover Beach (Cedar Street to 9th Street) on St. Simons Island, and Driftwood Beach (Beach KM Marker 1 to Tallu Fish Lane) and North Beach at Dexter Lane (Tallu Fish Lane to Brice Lane) on Jekyll Island.

The advisories were issued on January 12, 2021 after routine water quality tests showed a high level of enterococci bacteria which increase the risk of gastrointestinal illness in swimmers.

Subsequent water samples show the bacteria level has dropped below the Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended limits. Therefore, the advisories have been lifted. For more information about beach water advisories, go to www.gachd.org and click on the Environmental Health tab at the top of the page.
