|The state’s beach water quality testing program is conducting tests of nearshore ocean pollution this summer, as it does every year. The Oregon Beach Monitoring Program looks for Enterococcus bacteria, an indicator of a range of bacteria that can affect human health. |
This would be good information for CoastWatchers to have. You can sign up for regular reports for your area of the coast—North, Mid- or South coast.
For more information, or to sign up for the program, contact Rebecca Hillwig, the program coordinator, who is with the Center for Health Protection of the Oregon Health Authority: via email, or (971) 673-0431.
