Water Quality in the Keys called the "worst' by health authority. Beach testing funding will expand.


Bart Bibler, chief of the Bureau of Water Programs for the state Health Department, is quoted in the Keynoter in an article by Scott Fusaro.

"The worst water in the state is in Monroe [County],They have fairly lousy wastewater treatment." says the health authority.

Scott Fusaro writes, "In the Keys, 15 beaches are tested. Last week, tests at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in Key Largo and Higgs Beach in Key West revealed high concentrations of enterococcus, resulting in the health advisories being posted Monday."
