Information on Oil Spill Issued by ADPH
The Gulf of Mexico oil spill prompted ADPH to issue health advisories. In June 2010, ADPH issued advisories against swimming in waters off Gulf Shores, Orange Beach, Fort Morgan, Dauphin Island, and Mississippi Sound, and in bay waters close to Fort Morgan, Bayou St. John, Terry Cove, Cotton Bayou and Old River. Improvements in beach conditions led the department to lift these swimming advisories.
