Keller Beach at Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline Water Quality Conditons

Keller Beach is at the north end of Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline. There, visitors can wade and swim in San Francisco Bay. No lifeguards are on duty. Picnic tables and restrooms are nearby.

Swim Beach Water Quality Program

Keller beach is tested for bacterial levels weekly from April to October and twice a month from November to March. The map below indicates the sample sites on the beach. The East Bay Regional Park District works with the Contra Costa County Environmental Health Department in accordance with California Department of Public Health's "Guidance for Salt Water Beaches" to determine water quality at Keller Beach. Our stop light sign is used to display the relative water quality from our latest bacteriological tests.
