County health officials lift Morro Bay water advisory

County environmental health officials have lifted an advisory to avoid water contact at Morro Bay City Beach.

The advisory signs were posted Wednesday after a water sample taken north of Morro Rock showed high bacteria levels. A subsequent test showed that bacteria levels had returned to normal.

Morro Bay City Beach is one of 20 popular beaches in the county monitored weekly for bacteria levels.
