Correction Note: the Healthy Beaches Program data shows that the beach testing resulted in 62 days of bacteria levels above the acceptable US EPA levels for safety, over a 12 year period. This resulted in advisories, rather than closures. However, the director of the Healthy Beaches program, Keri Kaczor, states that weekly testing of Lincolnville Beach has shown elevated levels of bacteria (beyond safe levels) 17% of the time and as high as 240x higher than the safety limit for contact. Frohock Brook tested higher than EPA safety levels 40% of the time. She summarizes the primary cause being human pollutants. (absent or aging infrastructure, overboard discharge units, malfunctioning septic systems and cesspools). Excessive levels of bacteria and other factors can cause an advisory, upon which the EPA warns the public to avoid all water contact activities.
