 ******************************************************************************************************************** A beach status of "Open" indicates that water quality has been found to be acceptable for bathing. A beach status of "Advisory" indicates that an advisory has been issued in response to events such as heavy rainfall that may pose a risk to public health. Under advisories, swimming and other means of water contact are not recommended. Advisories are typically issued for a 24-hour period to allow for sufficient tidal exchange to dilute any contamination that may be present. A beach status of "Closed" indicates the beach has been closed due to a water quality criteria exceedance or the existence of a condition that may pose a risk to public health.
