Poor water quality leads to 'no swimming' advisory at Jupiter's Dubois Park

JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - The Palm Beach County Health Department is advising residents to avoid swimming at Dubois Park after bacterial levels in the water tested in the poor range.

Health Department staff routinely samples the beach waters at 13 locations from Boca Raton to Jupiter for enterococci as recommended by the Florida Department if Environmental Protection.

Dubois sampled above 105 parts per 100 milliliters of marine water for enterococci placing it in the poor range and prompting the advisory. The area affected is the small lagoon located just off the Jupiter Inlet in the park. 

New results are expected on Thursday.
