Maine Healthy Beaches Program
The Maine Healthy Beaches Program was established to ensure that Maine's salt-water beaches remain safe and clean. The program brings together communities to perform standardized monitoring of beach water quality, notifying the public if health risks are detected, and educating both residents and visitors on what you can do to help keep Maine's beaches healthy.
Health issues -- swimming and water quality.
Miscellaneous information -- coastal cleanup, combined sewer overflow program, coastal waters and lakes, rules for state parks, why sand beaches are bad for lakes, and more.
