The Florida Department of Health in Pasco County issued a Temporary Swim Advisory on Friday for Robert J. Strickland Beach, which is also known as Hudson Beach.

Water samplings were conducted and an advisory was put in effect for the beach based on marine water bacterial indicators that have been recommended by the EPA.
