| The Surfrider Foundation's 2007 State of the Beach report has been released! You can read this comprehensive and informative report on the health of our beaches at http://www.surfrider.org/stateofthebeach.|
Although the core audience for this report is coastal managers across the US, the State of the Beach report also empowers concerned beach users like you by providing detailed information to take action on behalf of your coast.
The report evaluates the status of 9 Beach Health Indicators: beach access, surf zone water quality, erosion data, erosion response, beach fill, shoreline structures, beach ecology, surfing areas and website for 25 coastal states and territories.
The featured indicator this year is surf zone water quality. Water quality at our beaches continues to be impaired by both non-point source pollution and episodic sewer spills threatening the health of beach goers, surfers and ocean wildlife.
The sections of each state report provide numerous links to easily access additional information, data and reports produced by state agencies, academic institutions and other organizations.
