Bad news for regulars of the beaches of new Jersey. Today, August 16, for the first time in 20 years, urged vacationers not to swim in the ocean in one of the most popular places — Seaside heights. The reason is the low quality of water. A ban on swimming covers all of the oceanfront beaches, but the shores of the Gulf.
Although the authorities are not allowed to take water treatments, the beaches will remain open, said the head of administration of Seaside Heights , Anthony VAZ.
“You can come to enjoy the beaches and Classic American Boardwalk (coastal walking track in Seaside heights. — USA.one). I thank all who came at closing time; they will receive a coupon for a free visit to the beach another day this season“—appealed to those who wish to relax in Seaside Heights, Anthony VAZ.
According to the official, tested negative for quality, most likely associated with showers or cleaning the ocean waters, which in the water became visible baitfish, and he, in turn, attracted huge numbers of gulls.
Maybe tomorrow, August 17, after an additional check of the quality of water, vacationers can still swim in the ocean.
