Branford & East Haven Weekly Beach Water Testing Results

ESDHD urges our residents to observe any beach closure, advisory, or safety hazards signs. In areas that are not monitored regularly, choose swimming sites in less developed areas with good water circulation, such as beaches at the ocean. Avoid swimming after a heavy rainfall and also at beaches where you can see discharge pipes.
