June Grass Update for Walton County 7/8/13:PM

June grass update for Walton County  7/8/13:PM

on the June Grass Grossness Index. 

I stopped by the beach during l’heure bleue. The water is clearing up nicely. It is now the color of green tea (the real brewed kind is light brown, not that yucky yellowish stuff in the bottle) instead of beef stew. I could actually see the sandy bottom while standing on the shore. There is still a lot of suspended solids in the water and probably a high bacteria count too. I’d still avoid swimming for another day or so in Walton County. In Okaloosa County there is a health advisory due to a sewage spill, which I have linked to in another post.

At the time this report was made the beach flags were yellow, but check them again before you head to the beach. In Walton County you can text “beachflag” to 67463*

I would love it if you would share your personal June Grass and beach condition reports on the Most Recent June Grass Sightings & Beach Conditions page, to further improve the June Grass Report. It would also be great if you left a comment to tell me where you’re traveling from to visit the beach!

If there isn’t a current June Grass report up on this site I suggest checking the link to local beach cams on the left side of this page. They can often give you an idea of what the water is like. It is also important to “Know Before You Go” and check local beach flags. They are updated twice daily at 9:30am and 1:30pm.
