DEP Reports Ocean Water’s Clean for Independence Day Weekend

Cape May Point beach

By Press Release

COURT HOUSE – Water quality samples for all Cape May County ocean beaches were within the standard July 3, according to the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP).
Beaches at 10th and John F. Kennedy Boulevard, North Wildwood, Bennett Avenue, Wildwood, and Lavender Road, Wildwood Crest, which had been under advisories earlier in the week due to bacteria counts that exceeded limits, were retested and deemed safe for bathing.
Similarly, the ocean at Wildwood Crest’s southern end, which was closed due to a malfunction at the Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority’s Wildwood-Lower Treatment Plan, was reopened after tests confirmed it was safe for bathing.
There was no flight report July 3.
The DEP does not monitor Delaware Bay water quality.
