Water Quality Advisory Issued by DOH-Hillsborough for Beaches in Bahia, Cypress Point, Davis Island, and Simmons Park

The Florida Department of Health in Hillsborough (DOH-Hillsborough) has issued a water quality advisory for Bahia, Cypress Point, Davis Island Beach, and Simmons Park Beach. Test results on March 6, 2024, showed that the water quality at these locations does not meet the recreational water quality criteria for Enterococcus bacteria recommended by the Florida Department of Health. DOH-Hillsborough advises against engaging in any water-related activities at these locations due to the increased risk of illness for swimmers. Regular water quality monitoring revealed that the level of bacteria exceeds state guidelines.

This advisory will remain in effect until bacteria levels are below the accepted health level. Test results are available at the Healthy Beaches Program. For more information, individuals can call 813-559-4065 or visit FloridaHealth.gov.

The Florida Department of Health, accredited by the Public Health Accreditation Board, works to protect, promote, and improve the health of all people in Florida through collaborative efforts at the state, county, and community levels.
