Health warning for Pasadena beach
Anne Arundel County health officials are warning people to avoid the water on Venice on the Bay beach in Pasadena after high bacteria levels were detected there.
The county's Department of Health is advising people to avoid swimming and other water activities at the beach on the Patapsco River after the high bacteria levels were found on Saturday and Wednesday.
Officials say many factors, such as waterfowl, rainfall, water temperature and tidal action, can cause high bacteria readings. Anyone who has had contact with the affected water is advised to wash themselves and their clothes.
The advisory remains in effect until water samples show acceptable bacteria levels at least two consecutive days.
