State, Territorial, Tribal and EPA Beach Program Contacts

To find information on the current water quality or open status for a certain beach, contact the relevant state, tribal, or territorial beach program person listed below or select the jurisdiction name to connect to their beach monitoring website.  

When a state, tribe, or territory decides to open or close a beach, they report that information with relevant water quality data to 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 EPA in EPA Beach Advisory and Closing On-line Notification (BEACON) system.
