More on beach monitoring
Another swimming advisory was posted at Fairview Beach this week, the sixth advisory of the swimming season which is drawing to a close. The beach, along the Potomac River in King George, is one of 44 Virginia beaches where water samples are taken weekly from Memorial Day to early September. The monitoring results, and more information about the program, are posted on the Virginia Department of Health site here.
