The Kent County Health Department tests beaches weekly from Memorial Day to Labor Day for Enterococcus bacteria. The Kent County Health Department alerts the public to any hazards. Samples are collected on Monday and results are usually available Tuesday after 3pm.

For bacteria in brackish or salt water, to be considered “clean” the average level of enterococci must be under 36 colonies per 100 ml of water. More than that triggers an advisory. The county issues automatic advisories after heavy rainfalls if they are unable to test water quality.

Beach advisories can be checked confirmed by calling Kent County's hotline 410-778-1361

Maryland Healthy Beaches notification system has partnered with Google Earth to send updates. However, Swim Guide prefers to contact the Health Department directly as we are unable to determine the monitoring schedule Google Earth uses.
