• Clean Up after Your Dog

    Here’s why it’s important to clean up after your dog.
    Start with a “doggie treasure” left on a rainy sidewalk.

    Add a healthy amount of runoff from the sidewalk into the storm drain.

    And witness the drain emptying into the water at Lover’s Point.

    This is also one reason the Monterey County Health Department advises humans to stay out of the water near storm drains for three days after it rains.

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
