If you’re heading down to Fairview Beach, you might want to stay out of the water this weekend. The Health Department has posted a swimming advisory. A weekly water test on Monday showed that bacteria levels were above what’s considered safe. And a follow-up test, usually done by mid-week, wasn’t available, so the advisory will be in effect through the weekend. See my story in tomorrow’s Free Lance-Star for more details.
