REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- There is a swimming advisory currently at Rehoboth Beach on Rehoboth Avenue due to an elevated indicator bacteria sample, the Delaware Department of National Resources and Environmental Control said.

According to DNREC, the elevated level is likely due to "wildlife sources," since there has been no significant rainfall since the previous sample was collected on Aug. 21.

Another sample has been collected, and the advisory will be lifted as soon as indicator bacteria levels are below the recreational water standard.
