(COLUMBIA, S.C.) -- The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control terminated a swimming advisory for a segment of the beach on Hilton Head Island on Thursday after high levels of bacteria were detected earlier this week.
Russell Berry of the DHEC's Lowcountry Environmental Quality Control office said in a release that bacteria levels "have returned to normal." As of Friday, normal activity can resume in the aforementioned area, the DHEC says.
Earlier in the week, the state had issued a swimming advisory for the area 200 feet above and below the southernmost community access near Lands End Ocean Resort.
