Brown Ocean Water Blamed by Storm Runoff & Lake O Discharges [Video]

Beaches & Intracoastal  |  November 15, 2017

The Palm Beach County Tourism Council is sending a letter to Governor Rick Scott about ocean water quality concerns.

The typical beautiful, turquoise green waters have been replaced by brown, nasty-looking water over the last few weeks.

In addition, the state health department had to issue no swimming advisories for half of the beaches in Palm Beach County because of heightened unsafe bacteria levels. Fortunately, Town of Palm Beach beaches were not on the do-not-swim list.

WPTV-NBC5 fround tourists on the beaches in town that said they were disappointed with the appearance of the water.
