Annual Beach Swimming Season Reports

EPA releases an annual report that contains national-level statistics of beach closings and advisories that states, territories, and tribes issued during the swimming season as well as beach data trends over several years.

You can also create a report for any year from 2014 to the present that uses the most up-to-date information in EPA’s database (that may have been updated after our reports were released) using the dynamic report.
