Swimming Advisory For Pamlico River Lifted

A swimming advisory for part of the Pamlico River in Washington has been lifted.

The N.C. Division of Marine Fisheries lifted a precautionary swimming advisory Wednesday in the Pamlico River in downtown Washington.

The advisory, caused by a sewage spill near Jack's Creek, was posted on August 9th and included the area between the Washington town waterfront and Washington Park.

Subsequent water testing at this site shows bacteria levels are below state and Environmental Protection Agency's standards set for swimming and water play.
