The County of Orange is currently participating in a nowcast pilot project in collaboration with Heal the Bay and Stanford University. The project is operating at 10 beach locations within Southern California, one being at the San Juan Creek mouth at Doheny State Beach and another at the projection of Brookhurst Street in Huntington State Beach. A nowcast is a computer-based model that predicts daily bacteriological water quality, much like a daily weather forecast. The nowcast will be updated daily, during the study period through October 31, 2017. Click here to learn more about this pilot project.
