FORT WALTON BEACH — The Florida Department of Health in Okaloosa County has announced water quality test results for local parks.

Two Okaloosa County parks have potentially hazardous bathing water, the FDOH-Okaloosa stated July 18.

Wayside Park, Okaloosa Island, and Clement E. Taylor Park, Destin, failed tests based on EPA-recommended enterococci standards.

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