Stony Ground, Columbus Landing Safe for Swimming

Oct. 15, 2004 – Stony Ground and Columbus Landing beaches on St. Croix again are ready for swimmers and fishermen.
According to a press release Wednesday from Dean C. Plaskett, commissioner of the Department of Planning and Natural Resources, the Division of Environmental Protection's Beach Water Quality Monitoring Program evaluated their water quality on Oct. 15 and they passed.
When beaches around St. Croix were monitored on Oct. 12, those two beaches did not meet minimum standards.
The program will continue to monitor the territory's beaches and update the public accordingly. For additional information regarding water quality call Environmental Protection at 773-1052.
