Data collected by State and local agencies, NGOs, and Tribal Nations. All data is stored in Ecology's Environmental Information Management (EIM) System.
Data Definition
Percent of core saltwater swimming beaches meeting water quality standards.
Data Frequency
Annual
Target Rationale
Swimming beaches are typically small areas with locally controlled sources of pollution. The BEACH Program conducts source tracking investigations and works with locals to resolve problems. Therefore, with appropriate funding, nearly all core beaches should meet standards by 2020.
