VIDEO: Testing the Waters

After a trip to the beach, visitors should leave with sandy feet and smiles, not an illness. Stormwater pollution and sewage spills can put our health at risk, so the County’s Department of Environmental Health is here to monitor the water and let us know if the water we swim in is safe for a dip.

Make sure you “check in before you get in” and visit sdbeachinfo.com for current beach water quality across the county.
