Clean Beaches and Streams Program
Entry ID: gomc_163

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Salem Sound Coastwatch is a non-profit coastal watershed association
that works with government agencies, businesses, other nonprofit organizations
and citizens from the communities of Manchester, Beverly, Danvers, Peabody,
Salem, and Marblehead, Massachusetts. We are dedicated to taking cooperative
action to protect and enhance the environmental quality of the Salem Sound
Watershed.

Purpose: The goals of the Clean Beaches and Streams Program are to keep the
public from exposure to water pollution at area beaches by: 1) providing
education on the health threats linked to bacterial contaminated water; 2)
increasing water quality monitoring; and 3) partnering with local Boards of
Health and Departments of Public Works to identify, post, and fix pollution
problems. To read more about the program and what you can do to be part of the
solution, check out "Making the Stormwater Connection". Trained volunteers take
water samples from streams and outfall pipes as they empty out on to our
coastal beaches.
