How long do they usually close a beach because of contamination for?

    The Beaches Environmental Assessment and Coastal Health (BEACH) Act was designed to monitor and identify beaches that have a high bacteria content and inform the public when the bacteria content reaches an unsafe level. Monitoring of beaches for bacteria content usually occurs during the summer when flow rates reaching the ocean are usually at their lowest. The exact time is takes for a beach to reopen after a closure for contamination really depends on what kind of contamination was found and the level of contamination. Once contamination levels have reached a safe level the beach should reopen.
