Ten beaches along the Jersey Shore have tested above allowed sanitation levels for bacteria tied to human and animal intestines and feces.
One of the beaches, which is not yet open, had more than six times the acceptable level of Enterococci, a type of bacteria found in animal and human waste.
Five beaches are under advisory following these results and five other beaches tested above safe levels but are not yet open for the season, according to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
State sanitary code states that bacteria concentration cannot exceed 104 colony-forming units (cfu) of enterococci per 100 milliliters of water.
County officials test water weekly at 180 ocean and 35 bay stations near all life-guarded beaches in New Jersey.
Rain often spreads the bacteria into the ocean water from sewers. More tests were conducted Tuesday and the results will be released Wednesday. If a beach fails again, it will be closed until the bacteria levels lower.
