Latest Beach Swimming Advisory Information

GLYNN COUNTY, GA – The Glynn County Health Department has lifted the beach water
advisory for South Beach at the Lighthouse, which extends from 9th Street to the Pier on St.
Simons Island. 

The advisory was issued on June 15, 2021, after routine water quality tests showed a high level of enterococci bacteria which increase the risk of gastrointestinal illness in swimmers.

Subsequent water samples taken showed that the bacteria levels had dropped below
Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended limits. Therefore, the advisory has been
lifted.
