A swim advisory for waters north of Sunny Isles Boulevard and south of the William Lehman Causeway in North Miami-Dade County has been lifted.
The advisory, which had been in effect since Monday, reopens portions of popular water spots in the area, including Oleta State Park and Haulover Beach.
The county issued the advisory after a sewer line burst last week in Aventura, sending 250,000 gallons of sewage into the water. Officials from the Florida Department of Health in Miami-Dade County and the Department of Regulatory and Economic Resources had to test the affected water sites for two consecutive days to prove that the contamination levels were safe enough for swimming.
Test results from the affected waters show that bacteria levels have returned to normal, the countys water and sewer department said in a statement.
