MIAMI (WSVN) - A no swim advisory at several Miami beaches is still in effect due to this weekend’s storm.
For the time being, swimming, boating and fishing are prohibited at some beaches on Key Biscayne, the Venetian Islands and parts of South Beach.
Saturday’s downpours, caused untreated sewer water to get into the ocean. Backed up sewers overflowed along Northwest Seventh Street and 10th Avenue.
Also, a resident opened up a manhole cover to release standing water, but that would cause more waste water to flow where it’s not supposed to.
Crews are disinfecting the area and the advisory will remain in place until water samples come back clean for two consecutive days.
