is sampled weekly from 1 June to 1 September

SOURCE INFORMATION

The Oregon Beach Monitoring Program (OBMP) works with the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to determine beaches that need monitoring based on several established criteria. These criteria include; pollution hazards present, previous monitoring data and test results, type and amount of beach use and public input.

The OBMP monitors recreational water quality at ocean beaches. OBMP works with other state agencies to collect and test water samples, and when bacteria levels are above normal a water contact advisory is issued. The advisory is posted on their website. Information about the advisory is also released to the media and to local authorities, and signs are posted at the affected beach. Advisory alerts are also available by email from the Oregon Health Authority.

Due to limited resources, only 15-20 recreational beaches are monitored each season. In 2014 OBMP and DEQ re-evaluated the list of monitored sites in order to ensure available water quality monitoring resources were allocated to the most appropriate beaches. The public was invited to weigh in on the location of these sites.

The OBMP runs from Memorial Day to Labour Day. Sampling locations on the North Coast are sampled weekly and sampling sites on the Mid and South Coast are sampled every two weeks.

Oregon’s beaches are sampled for a fecal bacterium called enterococcus. Several samples are taken from each beach.

The current status of a monitored beach is green if the level of bacteria in a single sample is below 158 cfu/100ml ((cfu) Colony Forming Units).

The current status of a monitored beach is red if the level of bacteria in a single sample exceeds 158 cfu/100ml ((cfu) Colony Forming Units).

The current status of a beach is grey if there is no reliable or current data available.

A beach is marked as not monitored if it is not on the OBMP’s 2014 list of monitored beaches.
