LUCIE COUNTY — The Florida Department of Health in St. Lucie County is maintaining a swimming advisory for River Park Marina on the North Fork of the St. Lucie River after higher-than-normal levels of enteric bacteria were found in samples, the agency said.Enteric bacteria inhabit the intestinal tract of people and animals. The bacteria's presence in the water is a sign of fecal pollution and typically comes from pets, wildlife, livestock, human sewage and stormwater runoff, especially after heavy rains.
