Gulf Beach remains open to swimming as of July 22

Ft. Island Gulf Beach Park remains open for swimming after the Citrus County Environmental Health Department reported the most recent test of bacterial samples remain at a safe level.

The water is tested each week on Wednesday morning, and if the samples are too high, the Health Department issues an advisory against swimming and no swimming signs will be posted.

For more information on water quality in relation to swimming, call the Citrus County Health Department at 352-527-5283 or for a more complete discussion on beach water quality visit the Department of Health’s Internet Beach Water Quality website www.doh.state.fl.us (Click on the drop down arrow next to “Choose Subject” and then select “Beach Water Quality.”)
