Where are the Clean Beaches?

June 25, 2004

 

Isle of Palms, SC -- As millions of Americans get ready to head to the beach for a vacation, you may ask yourself: "How clean is my beach destination?"

A beautiful stretch of beach in South Carolina was one on the list put out by the Clean Beaches Council. Beaches in ten different states made the cut, receiving the superior "Blue Wave" designation from the council.

But first they looked at factors such as water quality, conservation and erosion management.

Fort Lauderdale in Florida was singled out for a top honor for its program that uses recycled glass to bolster a shore that's prone to erosion.

And, strange enough, not a single west coast beach made the list.
