Beach ProgramEntry ID: gomc_180
Abstract: Beach Program personnel monitor and sample beaches throughout the
state from mid-June through Labor Day. About 170 public bathing beaches on
lakes, rivers, and impoundments are inspected on a monthly basis, while about
15 coastal and estuarine beaches are inspected on a weekly or bi-weekly basis
during the swim season. DES ... Beach Inspectors collect two to three bacteria
samples from each beach depending upon the length of the bathing area. Also,
DES inspects on-site toilet facilities, the bathing area, and surrounding areas
for the presence of potential health threats, and confers with lifeguards and
the public to address their concerns.
