The goal of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Beaches Environmental Assessment, Closure and Health (BEACH) Program is to significant reduce the risk of disease to users of the nation's recreational waters through improvements in recreational water programs, communication, and scientific advances. The BEACH Program applies to freshwater recreational areas such as lakes, ponds, and rivers, as well as marine waters like oceans and bays, as does the Beach Action Plan. The Beach Action Plan is a dynamic, multiyear strategy governing all EPA activities protecting the public's health from pathogens in recreational waters. One of the objectives listed in the Beach Action Plan is for EPA to arrange a series of technical conferences intended for state and local recreational water quality managers. EPA hosted two regional beach conferences, one in San Diego, California, August 31-September 1, 1999, and the second in Tampa, Florida, October 18-19, 1999, to emphasize regional issues and implementation of national guidance.
