Part of Chick's Beach is closed due to high bacterial levels
06:26 PM EDT on Friday, September 12, 2003


Reported by: Kathryn Barrett



Part of Chesapeake Beach in Va. Beach will be closed all weekend to swimming and fishing.

Weekly testing of the bay water showed high levels of bacteria from Fentress Avenue to Windy Road. Re-testing confirmed that there's too much enterococci in the water.

According to the government, an Enterococcus infection can cause complicated abdominal infections, skin and skin structure infections, urinary tract infections and infections of the blood stream

The area will be off limits to all water activities until at least Monday afternoon.

“We will not reopen this water until additional testing has been completed and results indicate that human activity is safe,” said Clarence Warnstaff, acting chief operating officer for the city.

Officials said they'll test the water again on Sunday, weather permitting

At Windy Road, my friend and I were walking to the beach to see what was going on and they had already put out metal signs saying "Beach closed, NO swimming or Wading" But, a few people down the beach had totally ignored the signs and were happily boogey-boarding, unaware that they were ingesting some crazy bacteria.
