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.

Source Information

Surfrider Foundation’s Blue Water Task force is a volunteer-run, citizen science initiative and water quality monitoring program. The Eastern Long Island Surfrider Chapter has partnered with two local organizations, The Concerned Citizens of Montauk, and the Peconic Baykeeper to sample 50 locations on Eastern Long Island including ocean and bay beaches, ponds and lakes that are used recreationally and creeks that discharge into these coastal waters.The Blue Water Task Force tests both marine and freshwater sites for enterococcus, a coliform bacteria that indicates fecal pollution. Water samples are collected weekly from June to September. Testing is conducted bi-weekly during the fall (October to December) and monthly from January to May. Blue Water Task Force results are compared to water quality criteria established by the EPA to protect public health in recreational waters. Test results are expressed as the Most Probable Number (MPN) of enterococcus cfu (colony forming units) per 100 mL seawater by using the IDEXX Quanti-Tray/2000 MPN Table. All water quality results are posted online for anyone to view or download at go.surfrider.org/BWTF Weekly water quality reports are also distributed via email. Sign up to receive these reports by emailing chenn@surfrider.org with the subject “Interest In Water Quality Alert.”

When a site is marked Green, it indicates low bacteria (between 0 and 104 MPN/100
mL). When marked Red, results showed high bacteria (above 104 MPN/100 mL).
All data can be viewed at go.surfrider.org/BWTF. Any additional questions about
Surfrider’s Blue Water Task Force program or our results can also be addressed to
