The Ocean Water Protection Program The Health Care Agency and two local sanitation agencies (the Orange County Sanitation District and South Orange County Wastewater Authority) test the coastal ocean, bay and harbor waters in Orange County for bacteria that indicate the possible presence of disease causing organisms. The results of the tests are reviewed by the Health Care Agency Environmental Health staff, and if the data indicates a contamination, warning or closure signs are posted at the beach depending on the extent and cause of the contamination. Signs are posted at the locations where the contamination was detected so you will know where it is not recommended to swim. You may also call the Beach Closure and Posting Hotline at (714) 433-6400 or click on the "Beach Closures & Warnings" icon on the menu to find the latest status of a beach.
