Florida Healthy Beaches Program and Data (Bacterial Counts)

Beach water samples are collected by County Health Departments every two weeks. They are analyzed for Enterococci and fecal coliform bacteria. High concentrations of these bacteria may indicate the presence of microorganisms that could cause disease, infections, or rashes. Health advisories or warnings are issued if these conditions are confirmed. Latest beach advisories are accessible via the Florida Healthy Beaches website. This data set is no longer being updated.
