Bacteria continue to plague New Jersey beaches this week now that 15 beaches were closed Wednesday. Four were placed under a "water quality advisory."

The 15 Jersey Shore beaches were closed because of bacteria linked to urinary-tract infections, according to the state Department of Environmental Protection. The announcement came after several days of on-and-off heavy rains that may or may not have had an impact on the Jersey Shore beaches.

The possible culprit is enterococcus, a bacterium linked to urinary-tract infections, endocarditis, bacteremia, catheter-related infections, wound infections and intra-abdominal and pelvic infections, according to medscape.com.
