23rd Annual Vacation Beach Water Quality Report State Summary by SantaCruzSentinel

VIEWS: 1 PAGES: 37

									State Summary: California
Ranked 20th in Beachwater Quality (out of 30 states)
8% of samples exceeded national standards for designated beach areas in 2012


Protecting swimmers from bacteria, viruses, and other contaminants in beachwater requires
leadership. Federal officials must help clean up polluted stormwater runoff—the most commonly
identified cause of beach closings and swimming advisories—by developing national rules that
require pollution sources to prevent stormwater where it starts by retaining it on-site.

The Environmental Protection Agency must also set beachwater quality standards protective of
human health and provide states with the support they need to monitor beach pollution and
notify the public when pollution levels are high.
Reported Sources of Beachwater Contamination
(number of closing/advisory days)

    5,056 (92%) unknown contamination sources
    250 (5%) sewage spills/leaks
    209 (4%) stormwater runoff
California has more than 430 beaches along more than 700 miles of coastline on the Pacific Ocean
and San Francisco Bay. Historically, the California Department of Health Services administered the
BEACH Act grant. Starting in 2012, the California State Water Resources Control Board provided $1
million in funding and began administering the state's beach monitoring program. It also administers
the BEACH Act grant.

What Are the Water Quality Challenges and Improvements in
California?
Curbing Pollution from Dry-Weather Runoff
In urban areas during dry weather, runoff can occur as a result of landscape irrigation, draining of
swimming pools, car washing, and various commercial activities. Along the coast of California,
where summers are dry, dry-weather runoff is the most common cause of advisories issued due to
elevated bacteria levels. For some parts of Santa Monica Bay, sending dry-weather runoff to sewage
treatment plants has improved beachwater quality. In this densely populated area, more than 20 low-
flow diversion facilities have been constructed to route dry-weather runoff through sanitary sewage
treatment after trash and debris have been screened out. These plants are not able to treat the huge
volume of runoff that is generated during storms, but they do have the capacity to treat the relatively
smaller volume of dry-weather runoff. Due to these diversion projects and other efforts, water quality
has improved at the Santa Monica Canyon monitoring station at Santa Monica State Beach, though
challenges remain. At this station, 37% of samples taken from 2006 to 2009 exceeded state
standards, but exceedances dropped to 23% in 2010, 22% in 2011, and 10% in 2012.

In 2012, Los Angeles completed the last phase of a $40 million-plus dry-weather runoff diversion
project that diverts eight storm drains along the Pacific Coast Highway into a sanitary sewer system
and to the Hyperion Treatment Plant.

Same-Day Notification Studies
Currently approved methods for determining levels of fecal indicator bacteria in beachwater depend
on growth of bacteria colonies in cultures that take 18 to 96 hours to produce results. Because of this
delay, swimmers generally do not know until the at least the next day if the water they swam in was
contaminated. The delay also means that beaches may remain closed or posted after water quality
has improved.

Fortunately, new technologies that can provide same-day beachwater quality results are now
available. During the summer of 2010, a rapid bacterial measurement demonstration project was
conducted at nine locations at Huntington State Beach, Newport Beach, and Doheny State Beach,
all in Orange County. This demonstration project used quantitative polymerase chain reaction
(qPCR), a method that targets genetic sequences found in enterococcus bacteria, allowing public
health officials to issue the nation's first-ever same-day warnings for poor beachwater quality by
noon on the day water samples were collected.

The city of Los Angeles undertook a similar project at several Los Angeles County beaches in the
summer of 2011. This study was a cooperative effort among the city's Environmental Monitoring
Division, the county's Department of Public Health and Department of Public Works, and the
Southern California Coastal Water Research Project (SCCWRP). Eight sampling stations were
included in the project: Inner Cabrillo Beach, Surfrider Beach, Topanga State Beach, Santa Monica
Canyon at Santa Monica State Beach, Mothers' Beach, the Ballona Creek outfall at Dockweiler State
Beach, Redondo Pier at Redondo Beach, and the Los Angeles River estuary boat launch just north
of the Queensway Bridge (this location is not a beach). After reviewing the data from this effort,
which showed some disagreement between qPCR results and culture-based results, the project
team decided that additional studies needed to be conducted before qPCR results could be used as
the basis for same-day water quality notifications at Los Angeles County beaches. Additional studies
were completed during the summer of 2012 to help determine the reason for the discrepancies;
results have not yet been released.

Bacterial Pollution Reductions Required in Long Beach
In March 2012, total maximum daily loads (TMDLs)—which are cleanup blueprints for specified
waters—were established for bacteria at beaches in Long Beach and in the Los Angeles River
estuary, which meets the ocean in Long Beach. These cleanups will reduce fecal contamination of
beaches in Long Beach, protecting the health of tens of thousands of beachgoers each year. Once
they are completed, it is expected that the average number of days during the swimming season that
beachwater exceeds fecal indicator bacteria standards will be reduced to zero. In 2012, samples
taken at beaches in Long Beach exceeded the single-sample standard for enterococcus between
6% and 24% of the time.

Predictive Modeling
Researchers at Stanford University and the environmental group Heal the Bay are currently
developing statistical models that will predict beachwater quality. Starting with test models for 25 of
California's most polluted beaches, the models will utilize the history of fecal indicator bacteria
densities and oceanic and atmospheric data such as water temperature, current direction, and wind
speed at each beach. At the sites where models provide an adequate assessment of water quality,
swimmers will be notified of the beach's water quality status more rapidly than they would if
traditional techniques for measuring fecal bacteria were used. The models will also help to assess
pollution trends and will identify the environmental variables with the greatest influence on bacteria
concentrations. Researchers are now halfway through this two-year project, and the efficacy of the
models to predict water quality will be evaluated this summer and fall.

Trash Pollution
Although not monitored as part of the BEACH Act, trash and debris can heavily affect California
beaches. Waste litters the landscape, and much of it ends up in our oceans where it kills marine life,
poses navigational hazards, and impacts local economies and human health. Marine debris includes
a range of manmade waste, the vast majority of marine debris is plastic. NRDC is also working to
advance extended producer responsibility legislation that would help to reduce plastic pollution at its
source by incentivizing the design of less plastic packaging or more recyclable plastic packaging,
improving recycling infrastructure throughout the state, and generating support for activities that
prevent plastic waste from polluting our oceans and beaches. NRDC is also working with a number
of state agencies to support their marine litter control work.

The California State Water Resources Control Board is developing amendments to statewide water
quality control plans (Trash Amendments) to reduce trash pollution at California beaches. Currently,
they are meeting with stakeholders and preparing a draft staff report and a Substitute Environmental
Document (SED) for the Trash Amendments. The draft staff report and SED will be released for
public review and comment this summer. This policy would build upon experience with the trash
clean up plans established in Los Angeles, and it would identify trash as a separate pollutant to be
controlled statewide. In its current Strategic Plan, the California Ocean Protection Council (OPC) has
prioritized activities to reduce the source of marine debris, especially plastic waste. OPC and the
Water Board are also beginning to coordinate with CalRecycle to enhance waste management and
recycling activities that play an important part in controlling marine litter.

What Does Beachwater Monitoring Show?1
In 2012, California reported 715 coastal beaches and beach segments, of which 66 (9%) were
assigned a monitoring frequency of more than once a week, 331 (46%) once a week, 66 (9%) every
other week, 26 (4%) once a month, and 15 (2%) less than once a month; 211 (30%) were not
assigned a monitoring frequency. NRDC considered a sample on a given day at a given beach
station to be an exeedance if any one of California's bacterial standards was exceeded. (Please note
that even if all bacterial standards were exceeded for a sample taken on a given day at a given
station, NRDC counted that as one exceedance. For example, if a sample exceeded the
enterococcus, E. Coli, and total coliform standards for a sample taken on a given day, NRDC
counted that as one exceedance, not three Also note that in determining California's national
beachwater quality ranking, NRDC analyzed results based on the single-sample maximum BEACH
Act standard of 104 cfu/100 ml enterococcus.)

In 2012, 10% of all reported beachwater monitoring samples exceeded the state's daily maximum
bacterial standards. The beaches with the highest percent exceedance rates of the daily maximum
standards in 2012 were Avalon Beach 50 feet west of the Green Pleasure Pier in Los Angeles
County (83%), Poche County Beach in Orange County (67%), Aquatic Park (63%) and Pillar Point-
Capistrano (52%) in San Mateo County, and Avalon Beach east of the Casino Arch at the steps in
Los Angeles County (50%). San Mateo County had the highest exceedance rate of the daily
maximum standards in 2012 (16%), followed by Los Angeles (16%), San Francisco (15%), Humboldt
(12%), Santa Cruz (11%), Alameda (10%), Orange (9%), Monterey (8%), San Luis Obispo (7%),
Santa Barbara (7%), San Diego (4%), Ventura (4%), Marin (3%), Mendocino (2%), and Sonoma
(2%). NRDC considers all reported samples individually (without averaging) when calculating the
percent exceedance rates in this analysis. This includes duplicate samples and samples taken
outside the official beach season, if any.
What Are California's Sampling Practices?
Beachwater quality monitoring in California occurs from no later than April 1 until October 31, with
most beaches in Southern California and in Santa Cruz, San Mateo, and San Francisco Counties
monitored year-round. Statewide, more than 27,000 samples were collected in 2012.

Some counties in California conduct beachwater quality monitoring and issue advisories year-round;
these include Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Cruz,
Ventura, San Luis Obispo and Ventura. Therefore, the data provided in NRDC's analysis for these
counties reflects wet weather and winter monitoring at numerous sites affected by urban runoff,
which results in additional exceedances and longer postings when compared with most other
jurisdictions. Year-round monitoring and posting is a good environmental and public-health practice
that increases the level of protection to those who visit beaches where body-contact recreational
water use occurs throughout the year.

Individual counties determine sampling locations, but sampling depth and minimum sampling
frequency are determined by state law. Most counties sample at more locations and often more
frequently than required by state law. Samples are taken in ankle-deep water. Monitoring locations in
California are selected on the basis of the number of visitors, the location of storm drains, discharge
permit requirements to sample at particular places, and legislative requirements (for instance,
legislation requires the monitoring of all beaches with a flowing storm drain and at least 50,000
visitors annually). The vast majority of beach day use in California occurs at monitored beaches.

Samples are usually collected in areas where possible contamination is most likely. In Los Angeles
County, for example, sampling points are located where creeks or storm drains enter the surf zone;
these are usually permanently posted as being under advisory. Other counties may permanently
post outfalls and sample 25 yards up or down the coast from the outfall to predict further impacts to
beach bathing areas.

Immediate resampling is often conducted after a bacteria advisory (a posting) is issued in order to lift
the posting as soon as possible. States that monitor more frequently after an exceedance is found
will tend to have higher percent exceedance rates and lower total closing/advisory days than they
would if their sampling frequency did not increase after an exceedance was found.

How Many Beach Closings and Advisories Were Issued in 2012?2
Total closing/advisory days for 1,234 events lasting six consecutive weeks or less decreased 5% to
5,515 days in 2012 from 5,794 days in 2011. For prior years, there were 5,756 days in 2010, 2,904
days in 2009, and 4,133 days in 2008. In addition, there were 28 extended events (1,231 days total)
and 5 permanent events (1,069 days total) in 2012. Extended events are those in effect more than
six weeks but not more than 13 consecutive weeks; permanent events are in effect for more than 13
consecutive weeks. For the 1,234 events lasting six consecutive weeks or less, 92% (5,056) of
closing/advisory days were due to monitoring that revealed elevated bacteria levels, 4% (209) were
preemptive due to heavy rainfall, and 5% (250) were preemptive due to known sewage spills or
leaks. This analysis includes all reported county-wide rain advisory events. However, the county-
wide rain advisories are not represented in the beach-specific California 2012 Monitoring Results
and Closings/Advisory Days table because they are reported only at the county level.

How Does California Determine When to Warn Visitors About
Swimming?
Local health agencies are responsible for issuing beachwater quality advisories and closures. There
are four types of beachwater quality warnings issued: postings, rain advisories, permanent postings,
and closings. Postings that warn swimmers about the potential for illness are issued when a water
sample fails to meet bacterial standards. Rain advisories warn people to avoid swimming in ocean
waters during a rain event and for three days after rainfall ceases. Permanent postings are made at
sites where historic data show that the beachwater generally contains elevated bacteria levels.
Beach closings are generally issued due to sewage spills or other serious health hazards, but local
health officials may also decide to close a beach when more than one standard is exceeded or when
exceedances are far in excess of the standards. This is rare, however, and closings generally are
issued only when it is suspected that sewage is affecting a beach. Beachgoers can access
information about water quality on the California State Water Board's "Is It Safe to Swim?" website.

California employs the following bacterial standards:

    For total coliform, the single-sample standard is 1,000 cfu/100 ml if the ratio of fecal/total
     coliform bacteria exceeds 0.1. Otherwise, the single-sample standard for total coliform is
     10,000 cfu/100 ml. The total coliform geometric mean standard is 1,000 cfu/100 ml, calculated
     from at least five equally spaced samples collected in a 30-day period.
    For fecal coliform, the single-sample standard is 400 cfu/100 ml and the standard for the
     geometric mean of at least five evenly spaced samples collected in a 30-day period is 200
     cfu/100 ml. In some jurisdictions, E. Coli is used as a surrogate for fecal coliform; the standard
     is the same as for fecal coliform.
    For enterococcus, the single-sample standard is 104 cfu/100 ml and the standard for the
     geometric mean of at least five equally spaced samples collected in a 30-day period is 35
     cfu/100 ml.
Almost all counties monitor for all three organisms (total coliform, fecal coliform, and enterococcus).
Some beach management entities, including Los Angeles and Orange Counties and the city of Long
Beach, post a beach when the single-sample standard of any one of these three indicators is
exceeded. In Marin County, beaches are posted if either the enterococcus or fecal coliform standard
is exceeded, but not when only the total coliform standard is exceeded.

In San Francisco County, the single-sample standard for total coliform is 10,000 cfu/100 ml
regardless of the ratio of fecal coliform to total coliform, and some beaches require confirmation,
either from elevated results at nearby sites, from exceedances of more than one standard, or from
resampling, before a beach is posted. Geometric mean standards are sometimes used to keep a
beach posted after the single-sample maximum has been exceeded but rarely trigger a posting by
themselves. If geometric mean standards are exceeded, the state recommends that additional
sanitary surveys, more frequent sampling, and additional related evaluations be conducted. Unless
adjacent sampling stations exceed water quality standards, notifications are issued for the portion of
the beach that extends 50 yards in either direction of the sampling location where an exceedance is
found. After a posting is issued, samples must meet standards for two days before the beach can be
reopened.

Since 2003, San Diego County has used a predictive model to trigger beach closings at three south
county beaches near the outlet of the Tijuana River. These beaches are Imperial Beach, Coronado
Beach, and Silver Strand State Beach. The model assesses the need for closures based on real-
time information about ocean currents and other parameters. Use of the model allows the San Diego
County Department of Environmental Health to make more accurate and timely notifications to
protect the health of beachgoers.

In addition to advisories triggered by indicator exceedances, three-day-long preemptive rain
advisories are automatically issued in five counties (Los Angeles, Monterey, Orange, San Diego,
and Santa Cruz) when rainfall exceeds predetermined levels, regardless of bacterial monitoring.
These general advisories affect all beaches in the county. As a general rule, the Los Angeles County
Recreational Waters Program issues a rain advisory when there is 0.1 inch or more of rainfall at the
University of Southern California rain gauge, but this varies depending on factors such as how long it
has been since the last rainfall, how sporadic the rainfall is, and where it is falling. According to the
program, much of the watershed that feeds storm drain flow is in the hills and mountains, where
rainfall levels differ from those at the rain gauge. Orange County issues preemptive countywide rain
advisories that warn of elevated bacteria levels in the ocean for a period of at least 72 hours after
rain events of 0.2 inch or more. San Diego County issues preemptive rain advisories for a period of
up to 72 hours after a rain event of 0.2 inch or more.
Preemptive advisories are also issued for reasons other than rain, such as the presence of
excessive debris. Finally, preemptive closings are issued when there is a known sewage spill or
when sewage is suspected of affecting a beach. Closings are issued immediately upon notification
by the agency responsible for the spill.

Data and state-specific information for this summary were collected from U.S. EPA,
direct conversations with beach managers in the state, state grant reports to U.S. EPA
for BEACH Act funding, and the state water quality website. The information in this state
summary reflects current data as of June 7, 2013.




NOTE: Data and state-specific information for this summary were collected from U.S. EPA, direct
conversations with beach managers in the state, state grant reports to U.S. EPA for BEACH Act
funding, and the state water quality website. The information in this state summary reflects current
data as of June 7, 2013.

 1. If the 2012 percent exceedance values in this summary don't match, why not? The value at the
    top of the page reflects the proportion of samples exceeding the national single-sample
    maximum standard for designated beach areas. The values in the "What Does Beach
    Monitoring Show?" section reflect the proportion of samples exceeding the state standard,
    which in some states is more or less stringent than the national designated beach standard.
    Additionally, only samples from a common set of beaches monitored each year from 2008-2012
    are included in the bar chart. Because some beaches were not monitored in each of those
    years, the percent exceedance for this subset of beaches may not have the same value as the
    percent exceedance for all of the beaches monitored in 2012.
 2. Year-to-year changes in closing/advisory days should not necessarily be interpreted as an
    indication of the level of bacterial contamination. In some states and localities, the number of
    beaches and/or beach monitoring frequency may not be consistent from one year to the next,
    and beaches may be closed or under a swimming advisory for reasons other than known or
    suspected bacterial contamination. Other reasons include, but are not limited to, chemical/oil
    spills, medical waste washing up on shore, dangerous currents, lack of lifeguards, etc. In
    addition, because NRDC's totals of closing/advisory events focus on those events lasting six
    consecutive weeks or less, those tallies do not account for longer-duration closings or
    advisories. For trends in water quality, please refer to NRDC's year-to-year comparison of
    percent exceedance rates of state water quality standards.
 3. Reported closing or advisory days are for events lasting six consecutive weeks or less. Days in
    parentheses are for events lasting more than six consecutive weeks.
