HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire officials are continuing to monitor Hampton Beach and a nearby salt marsh for bacteria after a sewer main failure earlier in the week.

Town officials say they are working with members of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services to test various locations throughout the watershed. They say they are also seeking emergency permits to excavate and determine the reason the sewer main failed.

Results of testing Thursday and Friday at Hampton Beach - in advance of Saturday’s Penguin Plunge fundraiser - showed bacteria levels were “well within the normal range for coastal beaches.”
