Beach Advisories




Beach Advisory Sign

 

Should the water quality results from a beach site or other monitored stream site exceed the CNMI Water Quality Microbial Standards, a Public Beach Advisory, or "red flag"  is posted in social media, such as it is here on the DEQ website, and on the CNMI Waters Facebook page. It is also emailed to various agencies and individuals who ask to be on the email list, and faxed to local papers for publication. Red Flag placards are also posted on beach signs located at Saipan's most frequented beaches.

If a "red flag" occurs in an area that is highly used, like in front of hotels, WQS/NPS staff will go to the beach that same day to resample the beach. This allows BECQ to notify the public as soon as possible when potential pathogens are no longer present and it is once again safe to recreate in these waters.

Many of the selected beach sites have been monitored continuously since the late 1980's. That is why some beach sites bare the name of an old hotel that has since been renamed under new ownership. The original site names are used to ensure that these sites remain associated with historical data kept within the BECQ database and in the US EPA databases, and US EPA BEACON website. You can visit the US EPA BEACON website to view historical information about your favorite beach site or you can review the last two years of water quality information in the biennial CNMI 305(b) and 303(d) Water Quality Assessment Integrated Report. Below you will find the most recent listing of water quality results collected by the WQS/NPS staff. 

 

 

 

 

 


SAIPAN WEST BEACH MARINE WATER QUALITY REPORT FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 22, 2021

RED FLAG

The Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ) analyzes water samples collected from Saipan's west coast recreational beaches and storm drainages on the west coast weekly. Samples collected from the following locations contained excessive concentrations of fecal indicator bacteria (enterococci) that exceeded the CNMI Marine Water Quality Standards. These bacteria can indicate the presence of human and animal waste in the water. However, studies have shown that storm water runoff in tropical environments may also contain these bacteria from the natural environment, which may not be directly associated with public health concerns. Therefore, In order to adequately address public health concerns, DEQ has given the following locations a RED FLAG and advises the public not to fish or swim within 300 feet of these locations for the next 48 hours or until otherwise notified.
