With Spring here, many are headed to the beach to take advantage of this warmer weather. But before you go, be sure to check out EPA’s important water tip:
Check out the beach water before you go! We Americans take almost two billion trips to the beach every year, but people who swim at the beach sometimes get sick because the water is polluted. The good news is in the state where the beach is located, you can check with the state office to find out about the beach water – before you go.
