This map of the coastal and Great Lakes states depicting the states required to report on water quality to the EPA under the BEACH Act of 2000 was created in CARTO. The map depicts the location of each reporting beach, with a pop-up showing the public accessibility, county, state, and clickable URL to the Water Quality Report,
with Individual Monitoring Site locations and ID for further investigation. Use this map when visiting an unfamiliar area to find water quality reports for the local beaches. To create this map, spatial query, join, and field calculate were used for each of the 8,800 reporting location incidents and their unique identifier.
The user can mouse over the markers, or click on the links for more information.

The .csv data is hosted and geocoded on CARTO.
The user has the option of adding or removing the legend as necessary.
