Report: Mixed reviews on water quality at area beaches

The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — There's mixed news for sun worshippers hoping to hit the beach over the weekend.

An annual report from the group Save the Harbor/Save the Bay finds the overall water quality at the Boston Harbor Region's public beaches was down in 2015 compared to the previous year, but there are still some bright spots.

The group's spokesman says the report has good news for many of the region's beaches, including those in South Boston, which are still the cleanest urban beaches in the country. Several beaches received high scores on state swimming standards.

But the report also points to persistent pollution problems at King's Beach, on the Lynn/Swampscott line, at Tenean Beach, in Dorchester, and at other area beaches, which jeopardize the public's health and prevent residents from enjoying the water.
