July 25, 2018 - The Hampton Health Department has issued a swimming advisory for Buckroe Beach because of elevated bacteria levels that were found in water samples taken Tuesday. The department recommends beachgoers avoid swimming in the area during the advisory.

Recreational waters are routinely monitored during the summer swimming season. People swimming or playing in waters with higher than normal bacteria levels have an increased risk of developing gastrointestinal illnesses. 

The results of new tests are expected Thursday.
