GLYNN COUNTY, GA – The Glynn County Health Department has lifted the beach water
advisories for Captain Wylly Road Crossover Beach and Middle Beach at the Convention Center on Jekyll Island.
The advisories were issued on October 13, 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.
