August 24, 2020 – The Anne Arundel County Department of Health has lifted the direct water contact advisory for the Sherwood Forest Pier in Annapolis.
On August 19, the Department issued an advisory to avoid swimming and other direct water contact, due to high bacteria levels. Beaches are tested regularly during the summer as part of the Department’s recreational water quality sampling program. Advisories remain in effect until water samples show bacteria levels to be at an acceptable level that meets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency standard. The Department of Health has moved advisory signs at the Sherwood Forest Pier.
