Weekly Water Quality Monitoring
Evaluation conducted on Wednesday, June 29, 2022. We have a green flag for the Condado Lagoon Estuarine Reserve. Several areas throughout the Lagoon and the coast did not pass the monitoring standard—we recommend avoiding any contact with these areas and being aware of any precipitation events.
Message from your Virtual Community Hub
This 2022 hurricane season, Estuario encourages you to download the Community Hurricane Preparedness Guide and apply its recommendations. The strength and resilience of your community starts at home. In this month of June, we continue to urge communities to recognize natural risks and stay informed.
Take advantage of our informative platform, the Virtual Community Hub, where you will find vital information to prepare your family and community.
