Swimming advisory lifted for Carteret County sound-side site


MOREHEAD CITY, Carteret County - State water quality officials lifted a swimming advisory for a site at the Junior Swimming Camp in Taylor Creek on Tuesday.

The advisory had been in effect for nearly two weeks. It was lifted after tests revealed bacteria have dropped below state and Environmental Protection Agency standards.

The N.C. Recreational Water Quality Program samples 204 sites in coastal waters of the state, most of them on a weekly basis from April through October.
