Great photos- how frequently is the water tested at this beach?

Very nice photographs, I can feel the coolness of the water.

Maine's ocean coastline, many of our state parks and the outlet beach all report issues with water for swimming. I wonder what is the procedure used for safety testing at this beach in the article. Taylor pond is quite shallow, which is why it's great for swimming, but does that mean water temperatures are higher?

It would be interesting to see the last month's test results- especially with warm days and heavy rains.

Please keep us cool... will watch for more photos that places us in the location. Thanks,
