Water Quality At Eastham Beaches

Barnstable County SealThe quality of the water that we swim and play in is always a concern. The Barnstable County tests the quality of our ponds and Cape Cod Bay beaches weekly and posts the results graphically on their website. When there is a 'fail' due to bacteria they re-test the very next day, to minimize the beach closure. So far, there has only been one Bay beach closure, on a rainy day in mid-June. Check out their website (& check the water!).
