Fecal matter found in water samples near an Alton beach
ALTON - The state has issued an advisory for the Alton Bay Town Docks Beach due to a high incidence of fecal matter found in water samples.
The samples were taken in three spots in the area Tuesday and will be retested Wednesday. The state's web site says the high levels may be due to a septic system issue in the area.
The state will have its latest results Thursday.
