Advisory Lifted From Wakulla Beach

By  | 

The Wakulla County Health Department has lifted its advisory at Wakulla Beach. A "mystery goo" washed ashore last month, leaving many wondering what it was and where it came from.

The Department of Environmental Protection says test results show no indication of human waste or unsafe bacterial levels, just algae, so the Health Department decided to move the advisory sign back over to Shell Point Beach, which remains closed, along with Mashes Sands.

Both of those beaches have been closed since early August, an unusual length of time.

The county says it will be conducting a sanitary survey to try and pinpoint what's behind the high bacterial levels.
