We monitor 64 popular high-use, high-risk saltwater swimming beaches throughout the state. We often do this in partnership with local government. This is the list of beaches that will be sampled during the 2020 season.
We sample for bacteria beginning the week of May 18 and through Aug. 31. You can see which beaches are closed on our interactive Beach Closure and Advisory map during the swimming and sampling season. We encourage you to bookmark this map on your smartphone.
