The purpose of this report is to present a list of potential 'action items' related to beach health. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) cosponsored the first national BEACH conference on October 15-16, 1997, in Annapolis, Maryland. Numerous topics related to beach health were presented and discussed at the conference. Participants were asked to identify needs for technical assistance, assign priorities for short- and long-term actions, and, where possible, recommend protocols and procedures to encourage greater consistency among jurisdictions in beach health issues.
