FORT WALTON BEACH — Here are the Florida Department of Health in Okaloosa County’s water quality test results for local parks.

Five parks have potentially hazardous bathing water, the FDOH-Okaloosa stated Aug. 29.

Garniers Park, Fort Walton Beach; Henderson Beach, James Lee Park, and Clement E. Taylor Park, all of Destin; and Emerald Promenade, Okaloosa Island failed tests based on EPA-recommended enterococci standards.

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