Officials at the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services have issued beach advisories and five locations on the Seacoast are included.

Jenness Beach at Cable Road in Rye, Jenness State Beach in Rye, New Castle Town Beach, North Hampton State Beach and Wallis Sands State Park in Rye are impacted.

Samples taken from these locations show that they exceed state standards for fecal bacteria.

According to the beach advisory website, the Beach Inspection Program monitors public beaches for fecal bacteria annually between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

The Harmful Algal and Cyanobacterial Bloom Program monitors waterbodies whenever cyanobacteria blooms are reported. Current advisories for both beach bacteria and cyanobacteria blooms are posted on their maps, according to the website.
