Swimming advisories had been issued for some city beaches last week

Beachgoers can swim in the Atlantic Ocean knowing the water is reportedly clean after last month at city beaches.

• Atlantic Avenue Beach: Less than 10 colony-forming units per 100 ml solution

• Elberon Beach Club: 10 colony-forming units per 100 ml solution

• Imperial House Beach: Less than 10 colony-forming units per 100 ml solution

• Joline Avenue Beach: Less than 10 colony-forming units per 100 ml solution

• Laird Street Beach: Less than 10 colony-forming units per 100 ml solution

• North Bath Avenue Beach: Less than 10 colony-forming units per 100 ml solution

• Ocean Beach Club: Less than 10 colony-forming units per 100 ml solution

• South Bath Avenue Beach: Less than 10 colony-forming units per 100 ml solution

The weather is looking OK for Sunday and Monday with high temperatures of 77 and and 75 and cloudy days expected.
