September 2, 2020 – The Anne Arundel County Department of Health has lifted its advisory against swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding and other direct water contact for Herald Harbor Community Beach on the Severn River in Crownsville. The advisory was issued on August 26 due to high bacterial levels found in the beach’s water sample results. Water samples collected from the beach on August 31 were found to have acceptable bacterial levels for swimming and other direct water contact.
The Department of Health issues advisories against direct water contact when routine sampling results exceed the Environmental Protection Agency’s acceptable standard for enterococci bacteria.
