The water is not closed. But the areas of most concern will be where the run off water enters the ocean in the city. So by that logic you can't swim anywhere up or down the east coast. No the water is not the same. Some of the localities treat the run off water before it enters the ocean.

I do not want to argue with you... But if you think that just because Horry treats their water better than Myrtle beach it cannot be polluted by the "bad" water? Again, I have NO IDEA where Horry actually is but I bet the current carries the pollution ALL OVER, even to places that treat their run off much better... I would guess a few miles before it begins to become dispersed amongst the rest of the ocean. We are not talking about the ENTIRE ocean, only a 10 mile or 15 mile stretch... That they seem to have royally screwed up.

Horry is the name of the county in which Myrtle Beach is located.

High Ecoli.... Fish pooping too much in the water.....


For the last several years, the 'State' where I live have 'closed' lakes to swimming because of 'high' Ecoli...... flowing into the lake water from surround streams and it is blamed on high amounts of animal waste in the surrounding areas when it rains. ie..... No One Can Swim in the Lakes...... Because..... Animals are pooping in the Forest.....

I do tend to forget here cities are independent and are not in counties so not sure how SC is set up but the Horry County and Myrtle Beach have separate governments and separate laws the way I understand it. There is something like 100 miles of beaches.

I always thought the currents along the coast went basically north and the Horry counties beaches are mostly south of Myrtle Beach but whatever. For the most part all the beaches along the East Coast are polluted and many rivers and lakes so swimming in any natural water is a risk and always has been.

I do hope many stay away from Myrtle Beach it is getting too crowded away.

I Still say don't panic !!!!!!

but this is interesting: not sure my take on this

http://www.cityofmyrtlebeach.com/


ATTENTION: MYRTLE BEACH'S WATER QUALITY IS FINE...

Contrary to what is appearing in some social media, Myrtle Beach is NOT under a "no swimming" advisory. Our water quality is fine and swimming very much is allowed! The information being promoted elsewhere is NOT accurate. We cannot explain why misinformation is being distributed, but welcome your calls and inquiries on this topic. Again, what you are seeing in social media is not correct. Thanks in advance for your healthy skepticism of such an obviously wrong and misleading message about Myrtle Beach.
