Indiana's beaches are a wonderful place to play, watch wildlife, fish, and swim. With these beaches giving us so much, we have to protect them from a variety of potential problems. We can help you plan a trip to the beach, learn about beaches and the issues around them, and understand how we protect beaches.
Whether you’re at home or on-the-go, IDEM has you covered with up-to-date information on current water quality conditions at Lake, Porter, LaPorte and Kosciusko County beaches throughout the swimming season. Desktop or laptop users can use the BeachGuard Online Monitoring website; Android or other mobile device users, the BeachesAlert Mobile Application; and, iPhone/iPad users, the Indiana Beach Alert app.
For more information, call the IDEM Northwest Regional Office at (219) 464-0233 or toll-free at (888) 209-8892.
