Summary of Annual Beach Notifications

To help beachgoers make informed decisions about swimming at U.S. beaches, EPA annually publishes a national summary report and state-by-state data about beach closings and advisories for the previous year's swimming season. Read about the 2012 national beach monitoring and notification statistics (PDF) (4 pp, 508K) as well as recent developments in EPA's beach program.

Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.
