A Street Bay Side


This beach is located near the Sunset Bay Marina, and is mainly use as a boat launch for smaller boats. It is a rocky beach, with no lifeguard on duty. Because of its proximity to the marina and increased boat traffic use caution when in or near the water.

COVID-19

Keep your distance from other people.

Practicing social distancing is still essential. Only go to the beach if you are able to keep 6 feet or 2 meters away from others. Follow the instructions provided by your local health authorities. If your community has asked that you remain indoors and away from others, do so. Spending a day in any crowded place is the worst thing we can do for our most vulnerable right now and will counter our efforts to curb the virus’s spread.

Monitoring Frequency

A Street Bay Side is sampled weekly from May 23th to September 1st.

Source Information

Local boards of health, county department of health, and the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation monitor beach water quality in Massachusetts. The monitoring seasons is June through September.

In Hull beaches are tested weekly, biweekly (Kenberma) and monthly (Gunrock, James Ave. and XYZ). Infrequently used beaches or beaches that historically have had very few, if any, water quality issues are tested less often, while high-use or historically problematic beaches are tested more often.

The water at marine beaches is tested for the presence of Enterococci, a group of bacterial species typically found in human and animal intestines and are therefore present in sewage. Enterococci is also referred to as indicator organisms. Indicator organisms are used to predict the presence of pathogenic, or disease-causing, organisms associated with fecal contamination.

Swim Guide checks for the latest information daily, Monday - Friday during the swimming season.

A beach is marked Green when less than 104 units of Enterococci / 100 ml of water is present in a single sample, or when the geometric mean of 5 samples contains less than 35 units / 100ml of water.

A beach is marked Red when more than 104 units of Enterococci / 100 ml of water is present in a single sample, or when the geometric mean of 5 samples contains more than 35 units / 100ml of water.

A beach is marked Grey when there is no current or reliable monitoring information available.
