Elevated bacteria found at south Kenai River Beach
KENAI, Alaska (AP) — State officials are reporting elevated levels of enterococci and fecal coliform bacteria at south Kenai River Beach.
This was discovered in samples taken last Tuesday and Thursday. More samples were to be taken Monday.
Officials say contact with the bacteria may cause stomachaches, diarrhea or ear, eye and skin infections.
The Department of Environmental Conservation is recommending beach users take precaution to avoid exposure. These include not drinking or swimming in the water, washing if you do come in contact with it, and rinsing fish caught from the area with clean water. Seafood also should be cooked to a temperature of 145 degree to kill pathogens.
The cause isn't known for increased levels at the beach, located on the south bank of the Kenai River where it meets Cook Inlet.
Just try not to drink beach water
