2nd Swim Advisory Issued For Cape Lookout

There's been a swimming advisory for another portion of the Cape Lookout National Seashore.

The State Health Department issued the advisory for the sound-side area at the Cape Lookout park service dock near Barden Inlet. Test results there showed high bacteria levels that exceed state and federal standards.

An advisory issued June 3rd for another portion of Cape Lookout, an ocean-side access some two miles north of Cape Point, remains in effect.

The advisories affect water within 200 feet of posted signs.

    Sounds like a bottle of Lysol concentrate would fix the problem...might make things smell better, too.

    Hope it does not spread north.

    Sea Gull poop has a tendency to do that, but what do I know, just mere snake oil salesman.....

    When the oil slick gets here, it will create a protective coating on your body.

    If there are high levels of bacteria on Cape Lookout where there is no development it must be really bad at Atlantic Beach.
