Pine Island Beach swimming advisory in effect
The Florida Department of Health in Hernando County announces that Pine Island Beach, located at 10840 Pine Island Drive in Spring Hill, is currently under a swimming advisory due to high bacterial levels. This is a common occurrence in many areas of Florida after a heavy rain.
The water will be re-tested this week and an announcement will be made when the advisory is lifted. The beach and park areas remain open to the public.
