Beaches We Monitor

The OBMP samples during the summer season (Memorial Day - Labor Day). Sampling locations are typically monitored weekly (north coast) or every two weeks (mid coast and south coast). Find out how sites are selected for monitoring. Re-evaluation of monitored beaches will occur again in 2016 (if the OBMP receives continued funding from the EPA).
