Advisory: One Beach in Zihuatanejo Registers Slight Pollution

Via The Associated Press:

Mexican health authorities say two beaches in Acapulco are severely contaminated and one in Zihuatanejo registered pollution slightly above permitted levels. The commission said Zihuatanejo's Principal Beach has bacteria levels of 233 units, slightly above accepted levels. The Zihuatanejo beach is among the most crowded at the resort spot favored by both Mexican and U.S. tourists alike. Gastrointestinal illnesses as well as eye, ear and skin infections could result from exposure to the bacteria.
Although the pollution level is only slightly above the permitted amount, it would be wise to avoid the water until further notice by the commission.
