FDEP’s routine beach monitoring is being reduced from biweekly to event-driven sampling (i.e., major storm events, large scale deposition of oil product on the beach). Detectable concentrations of PAHs were rarely observed and never exceeded DOH’s human health screening levels. All event-driven sampling results will be posted on this webpage as the data become available.

Updated February 24, 2011

DEP began monitoring Northwest Florida beaches the week of February 7, 2011 for persistent oil spill contaminants in water and sediment. All test results in Florida are compared to the adopted Florida human health screening levels. Human health screening levels for chemicals of concern are set for either water or sediment below which there is no significant risk for long-term human health effects. Based on analysis by DOH, the data collected to date have indicated no risk to human health from oil spill contaminants. Raw data from testing is available on this website. An explanation of what this data means to your health, as determined by DOH, is available at www.myfloridaeh.com/beachnames.html.
