Year-Round Water Quality Testing in Delaware

Victory | January 01 2007

Clean Water

Delaware beaches are used throughout the year especially by surfers on those epic winter swells. Therefore, water quality testing should be extended into the off-season.

The Delaware Chapter convinced the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) to expand their beach monitoring program beyond the normal tourist season to year-round testing.

Clean Water

Everyone should have access to clean water to surf, swim and play in. The Surfrider Foundation is taking a multi-tiered approach to tackle ocean pollution problems. We are testing the waters for bacteria and toxins, raising public awareness and finding real solutions to ocean pollution; solutions that restore healthy watersheds, protect local water supplies and keep pollution from reaching the ocean.
