Retalion Road, Helen Road, Beaumont Avenue, and Texas City Dike have all tested dangerously high for bacteria.
What does that mean? Well, it means that if you drink, inhale, or get the water in a cut or scrape, you might suffer a bacterial infection, illness, or in rare cases even death.
Pregnant women, young children, and people with weak or compromised immune systems should be especially careful to avoid these beaches.
The types of bacteria found in the water have not been released, however they could be anything from E. Coli to Vibrio Vulnificus (AKA “flesh eating bacteria”).
