More at VBGov.com:

The Virginia Beach Department of Public Health has lifted a swimming and wading advisory that was issued for the Chesapeake Bay between Wake Forest Street and Kendall Street, and including the First Landing State Park coastline along the bay. Lab results showed bacteria levels in the water meet the State Water Quality Standards.

Signs have been removed that previously alerted the public of the advisory.

  1. So what kind of bacteria are the city health people finding? Is this consistent with dog waste being washed into the storm drains, or a septic tank leak, or illegal dumping from a boat? Maybe some answers would help us find the cause.
