Abstract:
Public beaches that the DOH recomends for potential shellfish harvesting. Updated on 5/29/2013.
Purpose:
This dataset is used to display open, closed and advisory beaches. It also supports the Shellfish Biotoxin Program mapping site at <http://ww4.doh.wa.gov/gis/mapping.htm>.
Supplemental_Information:
Not all public beaches are contained in this dataset. Only public recreational beaches that DOH monitors for shellfish harvesting are included. The Office of Shellfish and Water Protection monitors water quality and changes the status of these beaches on a regular basis.

Process_Description:
This layer was converted into ESRI coverage format and projected into the current coordinate system. Edits have been submitted from WDFW staff and DOH Food Safety and Shellfish staff. The layer now resides in ArcSDE and is edited using ArcGIS 10.0. In April of 2013 the county parcel data was used to refine the beach endpoints.
