Beach Water Sampling

Contact DOH in Wakulla County

Beach Water Sampling 

All coastal bathing areas are open to the public, and as such, are subject to water quality standards. The Department of Health has identified specific sampling areas for each county. There are two areas within Wakulla. These are Shell Point Beach and Mash Island. Our samples are currently being conducted by Franklin County Environmental Health through an inter-county agreement.  If these samples are returned with high bacterial counts at any time, the beach will be posted with standard warning signs.
