Surfrider members have conducted water quality testing at area beaches since 1999. In 2004, Newport Surfrider volunteers partnered with the Ocean Coast Aquarium Youth Volunteer Program for weekly beach water testing along a 20-mile area of the central Oregon coast. Water quality "hot spots" at Nye and Agate beaches have been documented by this testing and brought to the attention of the City of Newport and the Dept. of Health Services. The City responded by forming a Mayor's Water Quality Workgroup which meets monthly with the public to improve health advisory signage, streamline notification procedures, educate the public on water quality issues and identify cumulative and source contributors to water pollution at local beaches.
