Water Advisory Lifted For OR Beaches

Bacteria

CLATSOP CTY, Ore. — A health advisory has been lifted from Seaside and Cannon beaches in Clatsop County.

The Oregon Health Authority lifted those health advisories Friday. Officials previously warned to avoid contact with the water at those Northern Oregon beaches. The warning came after water samples showed higher-than-normal levels of fecal bacteria.

Results from *subsequent* samples taken by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality showed contamination has subsided, and the water no longer poses a health risk.
