Why we are doing this.
We are a non-governmental testing organization acting as a check to the counties testing. We provide a complete breakdown and transparency of data findings so that its understandable and educational to the community.
Our tests will take place close to the weekend (Thursday, instead of counties Tuesday) and provide 24hour test results on Friday. Results will be available before the majority of citizens enjoy the beaches and ocean..

BLUE WATER TASK FORCE OVERVIEW
Improving coastal water quality has been one of the Surfrider Foundation’s top priorities over the last 30 years. Our Clean Water Initiative strives to protect our water resources and prevent pollution from reaching the ocean. Ocean pollution is a serious problem. What is in our ocean water affects both the health of beachgoers and the sea creatures we love. For example, over 20,000 swim advisories and beach closures are issued every year to protect the health of beachgoers across the U.S.
The Blue Water Task Force is our volunteer-run, water testing, education and advocacy program which provides valuable water quality information to beach communities, identifies problems with beach and coastal water pollution, and works in your local community to raise awareness of pollution problems and implement solutions.
We provide you with the information you need to know if a day at the beach will make you sick.
