Sewage Contamination

The Bay County Health Department advises vacationers and residents against swimming in certain areas of the beach.

A lift station failure in Panama City Beach caused a discharge of untreated sewage into the lake between 12th Street and Lake Place adjacent to Front Beach Road.

Sewage contamination of water can expose bathers to intestinal viruses, bacteria and parasites.
