The Florida Department of Health in Walton County monitors monthly water samples submitted
by public bathing places during their operation season. The water samples are being analyzed
for enteric bacteria (fecal coliform enterococci or E. coli) that normally inhabit the intestinal tract
of humans and warm- blooded animals, and indicate the presence of pathogens which may
cause swimming related diseases including gastrointestinal disease, ear and eye ailments, and
skin rashes and infections. The presence of fecal indicator bacteria is an indication of fecal
pollution, which may come from storm water runoff, domestic pets, wildlife, and human waste
Sampling is also conducted by other county health departments at marine beaches and results
can be found at Department of Health's Beach Water Quality website at
