George E. Lane Beach

Weymouth, Massachusetts

Better known by locals as "new beach", George Lane Beach is a sandy beach located along the coast line of North Weymouth. There are no lifeguards on duty, so swimming is at your own risk. Water shoes are also advisable as the sand in the water is rocky. Amenities include a large parking for residents and non-residents, restrooms from May to October, and a public boat ramp.

MONITORING FREQUENCY

George E. Lane Beach is sampled weekly from June 13th 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. Beaches in Weymouth are tested on a weekly basis on Tuesday and results are available by Thursday.

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.
