WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The Florida Department of Health-Palm Beach County lifted water quality advisories at seven beaches a day after they were issued by the agency.

The advisories were lifted at the following beaches:

  • Phil Foster Park in Riviera Beach
  • Lake Worth – Kreusler in Lake Worth

Health officials said tests completed on Wednesday indicated that the water quality at all of these beaches showed an acceptable level of enterococcus bacteria.

Poor water ratings at beaches are typically associated with wildlife, heavy recreational usage, high surf from high winds and high tides or runoff following heavy rains, according to the Florida Department of Health.
