The Department of Planning and Natural Resources (DPNR) announces that the Beach Water Quality Monitoring Program, which evaluates weekly water quality at popular swimming beaches throughout the territory by sampling for enterococci bacteria and turbidity, which is a measure of water clarity, advises the public of the following:
DPNR performed water quality analysis at 35 designated beaches throughout the territory during the week of October 14-18, 2019. The following beaches meet water quality standards and are safe for swimming or fishing: St. Croix Shoy’s New Fort (Fort Louise Augusta) Dorsch Beach Stony Ground Pelican Cove (Cormorant) Buccaneer Rainbow Protestant Cay Cramer’s Park Frederiksted Public Beach Cane Bay Gentle Winds Chenay Bay Ha’ penny St. Thomas Bolongo Bay Brewers Bay Bluebeard’s Morningstar Vessup Bay Lindbergh Bay Sapphire Frenchman’s Bay Magens Bay Secret Harbor St. John Cruz Bay Oppenheimer Frank Bay Great Cruz Bay
