MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – Swimming advisories for several Miami-Dade beaches closed because of bacterial contamination were lifted Tuesday.
The advisories at the following beaches were put into place last week:
- Golden Beach
- Sunny Isles
- North Shore
- 53rd Street in Miami Beach
- Haulover South
- Crandon North
- Crandon South (originally issued on Sept. 6)
The Florida Department of Health issued the no-swim advisory after two consecutive water samples collected from the north beach exceeded the federal and state recommended standard for enterococci.
Water samples found enterococci, a bacteria that inhabits the intestinal track of humans and animals, and could cause disease or illness.
New tests revealed no enterococci in the water.
