BEACON 2.0 - Beach Advisory and Closing On-line NotificationEntry ID: EPA_BEACON
Abstract: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the BEach Advisory and Closing Online Notification (BEACON) system to meet the Agency's requirement to provide to the public a database of pollution occurrences for coastal recreation waters. EPA's response to this requirement, BEACON, contains state-reported beach monitoring and notification data and is available online. The ... “States” (including Tribes and Territories) are not required to submit their beach season data to EPA until the beginning of the following calendar year and then we work with them to verify that the data is presented accurately on EPA's BEACON website. For links to state webpages, please see: https://www.epa.gov/beaches/state-and-local-beach-programs. The BEACON 2.0 User's Guide describes how to use the online BEACON 2.0 system to obtain state-reported beach monitoring and notification data.
