SOURCE INFORMATION

The Washington Department of Ecology BEACH program tests water quality at salt water swimming beaches every week from Memorial Day to Labor Day for enterococcus bacteria. This is a fecal indicator bacterium that has been shown to have a high correlation with swimmer related illnesses. Three samples are collected at knee depth from across the beach to give an average and more accurately represent the risk of swimming at the beach.

The samples are then delivered to a state-accredited laboratory for analysis and results are available within 24-36 hours.

During the sampling period, Puget Soundkeeper regularly updates the Swim Guide to reflect the most current information.

Sample results are also shared on the Department of Ecology BEACH program website: https://fortress.wa.gov/ecy/coastalatlas/Tools/BeachClosure.aspx
