Beaches

State, Territorial, Tribal and EPA Beach Program Contacts

To find information on the current water quality or open status for a certain beach, call or email the relevant state, tribal or territorial beach program contact listed below.  

When a state, tribe, or territory decides to open or close a beach, they report that information with relevant water quality data to the EPA over varying timeframes. This can range from days to months after the information is collected by the state, tribe, or territory. You can find the latest information that states, tribes, and territories have sent the EPA in the EPA Beach Advisory and Closing On-line Notification (BEACON) system.
