HATTERAS, N.C. (WITN) - An advisory against swimming that was issued last Thursday due to high bacteria levels at an oceanside site in Dare County has been lifted.

The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality said the advisory was for an area at the public beach access at ramp #55 off Museum Drive in Hatteras.

WITN is told that the advisory was lifted because bacteria levels dropped below the state and Environmental Protection Agency’s standards for swimming and water play.
