Oregon Health Authority follow-up water tests at D River Beach showed lower levels of fecal bacteria Friday, prompting the agency to lift the health advisory issued three days ago.

OHA released a statement about the situation Friday morning:

Results from follow-up tests taken by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality showed lower bacteria levels. Contact with the ocean water no longer poses a higher-than-normal risk. Officials recommend staying out of large pools on the beach that are frequented by birds, and runoff from those pools, because the water may contain increased bacteria from fecal matter.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency grants have been used to monitor popular Oregon beaches since 2003 and timely reports are provided to the public as a result.
