Weekly water quality monitoring
Evaluation conducted Thursday, January 19, 2023. We have a GREEN flag for the Condado Lagoon Natural Estuarine Reserve. We recommend avoiding areas that did not pass monitoring standards, as well as any body of water during rainfall events (and at least 48 hours after).
The actions for the restoration and management of bodies of water within the San Juan Bay Estuary Watershed are possible thanks to the public. Donations to the San Juan Bay Estuary Program are deductible from Puerto Rico and US tax returns.
