Yes I have seen fecally contaimonated water having seen Katrina firsthand, lived on the bay 5 years, grew up along daphne and used to swim a good bit at Mayday pier, and have been in the water my entire life. Have surfed Socal so know about bad water quality.

About this Location
Perdido Bay : Perdido BayBrown stuff floating all over Perdido Bay and foam usually the foam is early in the morning
I did notify the ADEM and hopefully they will have something. Somebody should be persecuted for this litterally. Orange beach works for the fisheris and this is severely affecting fish #'s as minnows are abundant but you can't live in this..

Meredith Diskin has marked this issue as resolved.
Hi, thank you for your concern. We are currently issuing a special warning for parts of Perdido Bay due to the presence of a lyngbya algal bloom. We do not recommend swimming if you are seeing the bloom in your water. The algae itself can cause skin irritation and potentially stomach illness. The bloom can also cause increased levels of fecal indicator bacteria such as E. coli and Enterococcus. If you would like to know more about algal blooms you can visit https://www.mobilebaykeeper.org/algalblooms. At this time we have no evidence there has been a sewage spill or other release of human fecal matter but we continue to monitor the issue. If you would like to stay up to date on our sampling results you can subscribe to our Swim Guide alerts here: https://mobilebaykeeper.dm.networkforgood.com/forms/mobile-baykeeper-subscribed-e-mail-list. If you have any questions please email Cade Kistler (email@example.com) or Meredith Diskin (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you very much for reaching out to us.
