Swim Advisories In Pamlico County

Officials say there is too much bacteria in the water in some spots in Pamlico County, making it unsafe.

The advisories include the public beach south side of the Dawson Creek Bridge and the area 100 yards north of the Dawson Creek Bridge. State officials also say the bacteria count is too high at the public beach access off of Neuse Dr. between Vandemere St. and Ragan Rd. In Oriental.

Officials will continue to test the bacteria levels. For more details, click here.

    I really wish that alot of our northern tourist would just stay at home this weekend and let our beaches kinda rest. They are also not used to our beaches and will probably get sick by trying to swim. Many of them do not go out on the beach often and added this problem will just make it worser.

    Tax payers need to ensure they select politicians with the knowledge, skills and courage to properly fund and manage storm and wastewater treatment, and prevent these dangerous health conditions. No excuses. Polluted beaches and waterways could severly damage our tourist and marine industry, and that's about all Eastern North Carolina has left. Remember in November.
