Ocean Water Quality Testing
The Atlantic County Ocean Water Quality Program, in its 28th season, ensures safe bathing areas for residents and tourists who visit Atlantic County’s 14 miles of beaches from Memorial Day through Labor Day. Weekly water quality samples are collected from 42 different sites and tested for bacteria according to standards set by the New Jersey State Department of Health. Weekly results are available at on the Ocean Water Quality page or by calling the seasonal toll-free hotline at 1-800-633-SWIM.
