The following beaches remain closed in Ocean County, New Jersey, due to high water bacteria levels.

  • Avon Road beach in Pine Beach
  • Beachwood Beach West in Beachwood

There are advisory warnings for:

  • Harry Wright High beach
  • Harry Wright Low beach
  • A Paul King Park
  • Waretown

Officials believe recent heavy rainfall caused runoff, sending pollutants into the water.

High bacteria levels had been reported earlier this week at several beaches along rivers and bays in Ocean County, but further testing found levels at those sites had fallen to acceptable levels.
