County Health Seeks Volunteer Water Samplers

Water sampling of beaches, creeks, and lagoons is conducted by a combination of county staff and citizen volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering to assist in the collection of water samples from your favorite beaches, please email Greg Smith at or Kate Elgin at of County Environmental Health or call 650-372-6200. County staff will provide training and needed equipment and supplies for the sampling. Sampling is done every Monday morning, and volunteers drop samples at convenient locations in either Half Moon Bay or Pacifica for transport by county staff to the Public Health Laboratory for analysis.

I've been doing this each Monday for six or seven years now and look forward to it every week. You form a very intimate relationship with your nominated creeks/beaches. I do San Gregorio to Gazos, but the HMB run (Roosevelt to Francis) is beautiful in the morning, and the Montara-Fitzgerald run is epic. I choose to do it every week, but most do every second week or fill in when regulars are on vacation. They need helpers, so please help or pass it on to someone who may be able to.
