REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. (AP) - Delaware health officials have lifted an advisory warning beachgoers of higher-than-normal levels of bacteria at Seashore State Park beach.

The News Journal of Wilmington reports that the advisory issued Tuesday was lifted Wednesday afternoon after additional testing at the beach north of Indian River Inlet.

Samples taken Monday by the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control found fecal bacteria levels to be just over the water standard.

State officials found enterococcus, a fecal bacteria that's an indicator other bacteria may be present.

A water advisory remains in effect at Slaughter Beach along the Delaware Bay.
