By the way, the Department of Health's recreational water program collects weekly ocean water samples from 40 locations. The collected samples are mandatorily tested for coliform bacilli, E. coli, and enterococci. It is important to note that contact with ocean water that contains elevated levels of these bacteria on Los Angeles beaches can lead to illness and negative health effects.

Therefore, the Socium.Network team is convinced: checking the quality of ocean water is an important preventive measure to preserve public health and ensure safe recreation.
