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.
