Ocean City is lifting a swimming restriction on its beaches following a nearby sewer leak and earlier closures.

The beaches from Stenton Place to Delnacey Place are both re-opened to bathers and beach goers following the testing of samples by the Cape May County Health Department.  They had been closed as a precaution following the overflow of a sewer on Sunday.

The blockage was caused by a build up of grease in a line for the Strand Theater according to the Press of Atlantic City. Health officials are trying to educate businesses not to dump waste down the sink to avoid build ups like this one.
