Heading to the beach?

Before hitting the waves, be sure to check with your local health department for the most updated information on beach closures and advisories. County health departments routinely collect water samples at beaches to determine if the water is safe for swimming. You can also check EGLE’s BeachGuard for beach advisories or closures. Learn more about what causes rivers and beaches to close and what can you do to help keep them healthy in this EGLE Classroom video.
