High bacteria levels in the ocean water forced officials to close one of Sandy Hook's beaches on the Jersey Shore Tuesday, NJ.com reports.
The water off Beach D tested for high levels of bacteria, leading staff to close the beach and the adjacent parking lot.
John Warren, a spokesman for Sandy Hook, told NJ.com that beachgoers are encouraged to visit the other beaches: C, E, Gunnison and North.
The cause of the high levels was not known.
