Coastal Federation Water Quality Update

Hi everyone – want to share a quick update with you regarding water quality from Hurricane Florence. We have spoken to the state, and they are planning to collect samples in New Hanover County tomorrow and take the samples up to their lab in Morehead City to run; they hope to have results on Saturday, and will put out a press release and post to their website as soon as they do.

In the meantime, the Coastal Federation collected water samples at Wrightsville Beach earlier this week in the wake of massive stormwater runoff resulting from Hurricane Florence.

We just received the results, which show elevated levels of bacteria in ocean and intracoastal waters in/around Wrightsville Beach.

We strongly recommend the public avoid contact with coastal waters until the state is able to conduct testing and determines waters are safe for recreational use and shellfish harvesting.

For additional information, please reference the Coastal Federation’s earlier press release here.

And the advisory from the state here.

Make sure you are following us on Facebook, as that is where we tend to post most often.

Stay safe, y’all!
