Ocean and bay recreational beaches ( R ) are subject to opening and closing procedures of the State Sanitary Code and must be resampled when bacteria concentrations exceed the primary contact standard of 104 enterococci per 100 mL of sample. Consecutive samples that exceed the standard require the closing of the beach until a sample is obtained that is within the standard. Non-bathing beaches ( N ) are not bathing beaches and do not require resamples. Sample results shown in red have exceeded the monitoring standard and will be resampled.

* Confluent Growth: Bacterial growth covering the entire filter during a membrane filter test for enterococcus bacteria. This makes it impossible to determine the existence of discrete coliform colonies and therefore there is no way to count specific colonies. The site is re-sampled if this occurs.

environmental monitoring for public access and community trackingThis project was funded by EPA's Environmental Monitoring for Public Access and Community Tracking (EMPACT) program. Click here to find more information about EMPACT: http://www.epa.gov/empact/index.htm
