State of California Ocean Water Quality Bacterial Standards:

The minimum protective bacteriological standards for water adjacent to public beaches and public water-contact sports areas shall be as follows:

Based on a single sample, the density of bacteria in water from each sampling station at a public beach or public water contact sports area shall not exceed:

  • Total coliform bacteria: 10,000 per 100 milliliters; or
  • Fecal coliform bacteria: 400 per 100 milliliters; or
  • Enterococcus bacteria: 104 per 100 milliliters; or
  • Total coliform bacteria: 1,000 per 100 milliliters, if the ratio of fecal/total coliform bacteria exceeds 0.1.

Based on the mean of the logarithms (geometric mean) of the result of at least five weekly samples during any 30-day sampling period, the density of bacteria in water from any sampling station at a public beach or public water contact sports area, shall not exceed:

  • Total coliform bacteria: 1,000 per 100 milliliters; or
  • Fecal coliform bacteria: 200 per 100 milliliters; or
  • Enterococcus bacteria: 35 per 100 milliliters.
