July 8th Beach Report

July 8, 4 p.m. – Isolated Tar Balls; All Beaches Open

Posted on July 8, 2010 by South Walton Update

Beachgoers are enjoying all 25 miles of our coastline today under sunny skies, though red flags continue to warn of rough surf conditions.
There have been isolated reports of small tarballs on some area beaches, and crews are quickly responding. As part of the ongoing response strategy, Walton County now has more than 1,000 contract workers stationed throughout beach areas.
The Florida DEP is collecting water and sediment samples in various locations today for analysis. Reports from sediment samples taken June 28 and July 2 showed only trace amounts of oil, and water samples showed no oil. DEP advised that none of the results suggest that recreational activities should be restricted.
At the urging of the Florida Department of Health, the local health department has posted Oil Impact Notices at beach access points, advising beachgoers of health tips to follow if noticeable oil product is present. Beachgoers are advised to exercise personal judgment as conditions can change quickly.
