Levels of bacteria rise significantly in ocean waters during and after rainstorms. Elevated levels of bacteria may continue for a period of up to 7 days depending upon the intensity of the rain and the volume of runoff. Elevated bacteria levels in ocean water may cause someone to become ill or die. It is recommended that beach users avoid contact with ocean water for a period of 7 days after rainfall ends.
