REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) — State environmental officials have issued a water quality advisory at Rehoboth Beach after high levels of bacteria were found in the water.
Rehoboth Beach City Manager Sharon Lynn says that while swimming isn't banned, warning signs were posted Thursday on the back of lifeguard stands. The beach and ocean remain open.
Elevated bacteria levels were shown in a water sample taken Wednesday, the day before the Rehoboth area got over an inch of rain.
