A number of beaches in the North Shore to Plymouth and the Cape Cod region had been abandoned for swimming from last week few, in view of the possibilities of bacterial infections in the beach waters.
In addition, the health officials have warned that the region will get highly heated over the weekend.
However, the Massachusetts authorities have indicated to remove the restriction on the entry to these beaches as soon as next week.
The officials said that although, all the beaches are not suffering from the bacteria infection threat, yet, they have been closed as a precautionary measure.
As many as 30 beaches in the region were banned. One of those was Wollaston Beach in Quincy.
Officials explained that there are many causes of the bacteria breeding, which range from storm water overflow to accumulation of sewage.
They added that the bacteria can develop from the simplest of the insects like seaweeds.
“It’s what washes down through the storm water. People should stay out of the water when the bacteria count is high’’, said Wendy Fox, Spokeswoman, State Department of Conservation.
In another development, the Bedford officials proclaimed that they are planning to set up a fence around the Buttonwood Park Pond to ensure that animals and the swimmers keep away from the water in the area.
