Weekly Water Monitoring

The SJBEP started a new temporary weekly monitoring three weeks after hurricane Maria to test the water quality on different water bodies for fecal bacteria after Hurricane Maria. The monitoring activities were conducted on several points in beaches and coastal areas, including Vacía Talega, Pine Grove, Ocean Park, Laguna del Condado, Calle Nairn, Calle Serra y Calle Cervantes. Water quality results are being published every week and spread through social and print media, as can be seen in articles published by Metro Puerto Rico and Sin Comillas.


The San Juan Bay Estuary Program is a 501c3 non-profit corporation that designs, implements, and keeps track of restoration actions in order to improve the quality of waters and associated ecosystems within the San Juan Bay Estuary system and its watershed. The Program engages citizens, visitors and tourists, and partners with the government, private, scientific, academic and community sectors.
