Operation Clearwater – Water Quality Report as of 8/28/19

Happy Labor Day Weekend!

All but three of the beaches tested Wednesday, as part of the Operation Clearwater program, were within acceptable limits. Please see the chart below for more details. 


The beaches at Harbor Hills, Shoreham, and Southdown Shores exhibited elevated bacteria levels. Although we have not had much rain recently, warmer temperatures can sometimes cause bacteria cells to reproduce. However, it looks like we are in for a beautiful, clear, moderate temperature weekend! Just as a reminder, next week will be the last bacteria testing week of the season.

As per Anne Arundel County’s guidance, we recommend waiting 48 hours after a rainstorm before interacting with the water. 

Have a great week and stay safe,

Jesse Iliff, South Riverkeeper
