Water Quality Update – Aug 26, 2016

FDEP Only sampled at one location this week – Bayou Texar – but all looks good there.  – Salinity is lower than normal ( 6.5 ppt) but bacteria levels and dissolved oxygen are fine.

ECHD sampled for bacteria at three locations – Texar, Sanders Beach, and Big Lagoon State Park – all good.

Red tide was reported in background levels from the Tampa Bay area and south – the panhandle is fine.

No fish kills were reported to FWC for Pensacola Bay area for August.
