The Blue Flag Program

The Aqueduct & Sewer Costa Rican Institute, by means of its Central Laboratory, constantly evaluates the quality of the water on Costa Rican Beaches, in order to make sanitary diagnostics and make sure water is safe for the visitors and locals at the coastal areas. It promotes a yearly evaluation system that works also as an incentive for the locals that take care of the beaches. It consists on an ecological award, “Blue Flag”. It is given to the communities that have achieved a sufficient level of water ocean quality, residual water treatment, training and education of citizens, security and administration.
