Beach Advisory Lifted on Tybee Island

The Chatham County Health Department has lifted the beach water advisory for Tybee Strand Beach at the Pier on Tybee Island.

The advisory was issued on June 9, 2020 after routine water quality tests showed a high level of enterococci bacteria which increase the risk of gastrointestinal illness in swimmers.

Subsequent water samples showed that the bacteria levels had dropped below Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended limits. Therefore, the advisory has been lifted.
