The Palm Beach County Health Department lifted a health advisory at Spanish River Park in Boca Raton on Thursday.

Health officials put out a warning earlier this week because of elevated bacterial levels in the water.

But on Thursday, the Health Department said a new water sample showed "good" quality, and the park is open for swimmers once again.

Officials say heavy rains, high surf, and heavy traffic can contribute to the elevated bacterial levels.
