Radio Island Beach Swimming Advisory Lifted

State health officials say a water quality swimming advisory has been lifted for the public beach access on Radio Island.

Bacteria levels were above standards at the Carteret County beach and the advisory was issued Tuesday.

The state says new tests show bacteria levels have since dropped to acceptable levels.


Previous Story

For the second time in less than two weeks, a water quality swimming advisory has been issued for a popular Carteret County beach.

The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources issued the advisory against swimming for the public beach access on Radio Island, off Marine Road. Bacteria levels in the water exceed state and federal standards.

Signs have gone up telling swimmers that bacteria levels may be hazardous within 200 feet.

The same beach had a swim advisory lasting two days at the end of May.
