Bacteria Advisory For Monterey County Beach Lifted

MONTEREY COUNTY (CBS SF) — Monterey County health officials have lifted an advisory warning that told people to avoid swimming at a state beach in Pacific Grove because of high levels of bacteria found there.

The advisory for Asilomar State Beach was issued Tuesday by the Monterey County Health Department, which found high levels of indicator bacteria in samples taken a day earlier.

Follow up samples have revealed that bacteria subsided to levels considered safe for recreational contact.

More information on the status of Monterey Peninsula Beaches can be found by calling (800) 347-6363.
