Officials lift Turtle Beach advisory

by: Robin Roy City Editor

After being warned to stay away since Friday, beachgoers will once again be invited back into the water at Turtle Beach.

Signs were posted at the south Siesta Key beach last week, warning of unsafe bacteria levels in the water.
Fecal coliform and enterococci bacteria were detected at both Turtle Beach and Venice Public Beach.

The advisory remains in effect for Venice Public Beach.
