Baton Rouge --- The Department of Health and Hospitals, Office of Public Health has rescinded the swimming advisory for Cypremort Point State Park Beach. The decision was made after water samples taken during the past two weeks showed the area’s water quality has improved sufficiently to meet Louisiana’s BEACH program bacteriological water quality compliance standards.
This means the swimming advisory issued on Friday, June 25, is no longer in effect. The public should be aware that there is currently no advisory against swimming at Cypremort Point Beach.
LDH Office of Public Health staff within the Louisiana BEACH Monitoring program have closely tracked water quality at Cypremort Beach.
The goal of the Louisiana’s BEACH program is to provide the public with the necessary information to allow them to make informed choices about whether or not to enter the water.
