Problems At Ben T. Davis Beach

Tampa, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-The Hillsborough County Health Department has issued a health advisory for Ben T.Davis Beach.  The problem is too much bad bacteria.

Water samples taken from the beach this week were above the threshold for enterococci bacteria.  The health department says the high reading should be considered a potential risk to the bathing public.

The health department says when re-sampling indicates the water is within the satisfactory range the advisory will be lifted.  The beach water will be tested again next Monday, July 1.
