Sarasota County Area “No Swim” Advisories Lifted

Government

The “No Swim” advisories that have been in place at Siesta Key Beach, Service Club Beach, Casperson Beach and Manasota Key since Thursday, July 28 have been lifted. Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County officials received testing results today that were at a satisfactory level for enterococcus bacteria meeting both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state recreational water standards. Residents and visitors may return to swimming and other water sports at these beach sites. Brohard Beach, Venice Fishing Pier, and Ringling Causeway/ Bird Key Park remain under the advisory. The next samples will be taken Monday. The Florida Department of Health in Sarasota County monitors water quality weekly at 16 sites along Sarasota’s 34 miles of beaches. The intent of this program is to provide county residents and visitors with accurate, up-to-date information on the water quality at our beaches.
