Santa Barbara Ocean Water Testing

October 22, 2010

Planning a day trip to a Santa Barbara beach?  Did you know you can check the status of ocean water and find out which beaches have posted warnings even two days prior online?  Check out the county of Santa Barbara’s website here.

Since 1966 the Santa Barbara county has done weekly testing of the ocean on 20 local beaches (16 more recently due to budget constraints).

Find out or see something that looks wrong or causes concern…Send an email to these groups and make a difference.It took one person (Gordon Polk) sitting in front of a county bulldozer in Malibu during the 1980’s that led to the formation of the Surfrider Foundation. One small act, one big result. What can you do today to make a difference for our beaches tomorrow?
