No Swimming Advisory Lifted

Westport today lifted a no swimming advisory because of a generally reduced risk for contracting Vibrio illness.

The announcement was made by Mark A.R. Cooper, Director of Health for the Westport Weston Health District and Jennifer A. Fava, Director of Parks and Recreation for the Town of Westport.

They said the water temp in Long Island Sound is less than 68F, which is now being reported and that the State of Connecticut has not seen any additional reported Vibrio vulnificus illnesses since the summer.
