Water at some US beaches may make you sick
CAREY GILLAM reuters.com Every summer millions of American families head for beaches, but few stop to think of the possibility that the water they swim in may harbor enough bacteria to cause stomach flu and a host of other illnesses.
The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) found that 10 percent of water quality samples collected from nearly 3,500 coastal and Great Lakes beaches in 2013 contained levels of harmful bacteria that exceeded "safe to swim" thresholds recommended by the Environmental Protection Agency. (here)
The findings - published on Wednesday in the NRDC's 24th annual report on beach water quality - confirm that serious water pollution persists at many U.S. beaches, largely the result of stormwater runoff and sewage overflows that carry human and animal waste into waters where people swim, surf and sail.
"Too many people get sick when they go in the water," said Steve Fleischli, NRDC water program director. The findings are little changed over the last five years of testing, he said.
