DEQ assigns green flag on all Saipan sites
The Division of Environmental Quality reported that none of the samples it recently collected contained excessive concentration of fecal indicator bacteria nor did they exceed the CNMI Marine Water Quality Standards.
DEQ therefore assigns all of the sampled beach sites a green flag and told the public to "enjoy our waters."
DEQ analyzes water samples collected from Saipan's east and south recreational beaches this week as part of the regularly scheduled sampling.
DEQ analyzed samples of 12 Saipan east and south recreational beaches. DEQ welcomes all inquiries as to the quality of the beach water. The public is encouraged to contact DEQ at 664-8500 with any questions concerning this matter. (PR)
