Tampa, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-The Hillsborough County Health Department has issued a health advisory for Davis Island Beach. The advisory comes after high levels of Enterococci bacteria were detected in the water.
The high bacteria count should be considered a risk to the waders and swimmers at the beach. You are being advised to stay out of the water until conditions improve. Workers plan to resample the water next monday.
Hillsborough County has been conducting beach water quality monitoring at nine sites, including Davis Island, since August of 2000.
