Beach Monitoring Program

In June 1999, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM), in cooperation with the Alabama Department of Public Health, initiated a program to monitor selected swimming beaches on the Gulf of Mexico for the presence of fecal coliform and Enterococcus bacteria. The effort began with five (5) stations located along the Alabama Gulf coast and in August 2000, was expanded to include six (6) additional stations located in and around Mobile Bay.
