Recreational Waters

The Department monitors recreational waters to protect the public. It tests for levels of Enterococci bacteria at all guarded, and several unguarded, public beaches during the swimming season. It tests several freshwater ponds for special events. High Enterococcus levels can mean there are other, potentially harmful, bacteria and viruses in the water. Use the map below to find the latest test results. Learn more about recreational water monitoring in Delaware.
