Health Advisory Lifted For Oregon Beaches

The Oregon Health Authority lifted a public health advisory for contact with marine water at Agate Beach, Seal Rock State Park Beach, and Harris Beach Monday.

The advisories were issued last week after higher-than-normal levels of fecal bacteria were found in the ocean water. However, later samples taken by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality showed lower bacteria levels and the advisory was lifted. Officials still recommend staying out of tide pools frequented by birds because they may contain high levels of fecal matter.
