Summary of Annual Beach Notifications

To help beachgoers make informed decisions about swimming at U.S. beaches, EPA gathers state-by-state data about beach closings and advisories. Between 1999 and 2012, EPA published a national summary report about the previous year’s swimming season data.

The 2012 report is the final annual beach report. You can find the most currently available swimming season statistics in BEACON.
