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 GJSMith@smcgov.org or Kate Elgin at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
