The Environnement-Plage program assesses the bacteriological quality of participating swimming beaches in all regions of Québec. To be evaluated, a beach must be public and recognized as safe by the Régie du bâtiment du Québec.
Sampling is done at least twice during the summer, and ratings (excellent, good, fair, polluted) are posted on-site as well as on the Web site of the Ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement et de la Lutte contre les changements climatiques, which manages the program in partnership with the beach operators.
