Abstract:
Assateague Island National Seashore (ASIS) Resource Management staff monitors ocean beaches weekly for enterococcus bacteria from early May through mid September. Also once a month, ASIS staff collects fecal coliform samples for the Maryland State Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene (MD DHMH). Fecal coliform sampling is performed in conjunction with the enterococcus sampling. Samples are collected from 5 sites weekly and an additional 2 sites in the State Park during monthly state fecal coliform sampling. 

This data set shows the locations of beach water quality sites 1-5 in 2000.
Purpose:
The purpose of this data set is to monitor ocean beaches for public health and to provide data for the possibility of having to close the beach for safety reasons.
Supplemental_Information:
There is also 2003 and 2004 beach monitoring data available.
