Beach Advisory Lifted for St. Simons Island

The Glynn County Health Department has lifted the beach water advisory for North Beach at Goulds Inlet on St. Simons Island.

The advisory was issued on April 6, 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 taken showed that the bacteria levels had dropped below Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended limits. Therefore, the advisory has been lifted.
