Beach Advisory Lifted for Middle Beach on Jekyll Island

The Glynn County Health Department has lifted the beach water advisory for Middle Beach at the Convention Center, which is from the beach pavilion to Corsair Beach Park on Jekyll Island.

The advisory was issued on January 26, 2021 after routine water quality tests showed a high level of enterococci bacteria which increase the risk of gastrointestinal illness in swimmers.

Subsequent water samples show the bacteria level has dropped below the Environmental Protection Agency’s recommended limits. Therefore, the advisory has been lifted.
