In addition, six stations at two parks (Dinky Dock on Lake Virginia, and Lake Baldwin Park on Lake Baldwin) are monitored bi-weekly for bacterial contamination. Additional temporary stations, or parameters, are added as needed to facilitate specific studies, or to determine the cause of unusual conditions that may be observed.
This area is sampled bi-weekly for bacterial contamination. The beach is posted with no swimming warning signs when bacteria counts exceed State of Florida guidelines for swimming areas.
The area is monitored at the same frequency as Dinky Dock, and is usually within State standards for bacterial contamination. The presence of dogs in the beach area, however, creates an elevated risk for other parasites that cannot be tested for, and for which there are not accepted recreational beach standards in place. Because the beach is a designated no swimming area, additional sample based posting is not performed.
This area is permanently CLOSED to people for the purpose of swimming.
