FORT WALTON BEACH — All Okaloosa County parks lack potentially hazardous bathing water, the Florida Department of Health in Okaloosa County stated this week.



Lincoln Park, Valparaiso; Poquito Park, Shalimar; Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park, Niceville; Liza Jackson Park and Garniers Park, Fort Walton Beach; Gulf Islands National Seashore, East Pass, Emerald Promenade, Marler Park and Wayside Park, Okaloosa Island; and Clement E. Taylor Park, Henderson Beach and James Lee Park, Destin, passed tests based on EPA-recommended enterococci standards.



Enteric bacteria’s presence indicates fecal pollution from stormwater runoff, pets and wildlife or human sewage.
