Encinal beach is tested for bacterial levels weekly from April to October and twice a month from November to March. This map shows the sample site(s) along this beach. The East Bay Regional Park District works with the Alameda County Environmental Health Department in accordance with California Department of Public Health's Guidance for Salt Water Beaches to determine water quality at Encinal Beach. Our stop light sign is used to display the relative water quality from our latest bacteriological tests.
