Swimming advisory in effect for Greynolds Park, Oleta River State Park

Advisory issued after sewer line break spills about 5,800 gallons of wastewater


NORTH MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – A precautionary swimming advisory is in effect for two North Miami Beach parks after a nearby sewer line broke.

The advisories were issued Saturday for Greynolds Park and Oleta River State Park.

Miami-Dade County spokeswoman Jennifer Messemer-Skold said an air release valve broke off a 36-inch sewer line at Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 168th Street, causing about 5,800 gallons of wastewater to spill into the waterway.

County officials have already repaired the break and posted signs around the affected areas.

The Florida Department of Health is testing the water, but the advisory will remain in effect until two consecutive days of clear testing occur.
