Data Exchange Description
Under the BEACH Act (Beaches Environmental Assessment and Coastal Health Act), grant recipients are required to submit beach notification data to EPA. The Beach Notification data exchange supports the reporting of beach meta data, contact information, and beach advisory and closing data. The Flow Implementation Guide provides a high-level overview of the data flow.
To report monitoring data, see the Beach Monitoring data exchange.
The Beach Notification schema and supporting flow documentation have been approved for use on the Exchange Network. Implementation resources for the most current version follow.
