FYI: From the Post yesterday is news, “No-swim advisories issued for beaches in Jupiter, Lake Worth”. From the City of Lake Worth, a press release dated today, May 16th:

Lake Worth, Florida — A swim advisory has been issued near Lake Worth Beach for the next 24–48 hours due to elevated bacteria levels in the water. As a precautionary measure Lake Worth Beach will be closed to public swimming. All Casino Building tenants and Benny’s on the Beach will remain open. Health officials plan to retest the waters and will inform the public when bacteria levels are within acceptable health standards.

So why exactly is the water “icky”? For one possible idea why, please continue to the next blog post.
