You might want to stay on the sand...

From PIX11:

If you’re thinking about taking a dip at the beach this summer, you may want to think again.

Turns out the water on New York’s beaches is pretty dirty.

According to a study done by the Environmental Protection Agency, New York ranks 20th out of 30 states tested in beach water quality.

The Natural Resources Defense Council has created charts for people to see how much bacteria is in the water they are swimming in.

Looks like the Rockaways are pretty clean. But don't take a dip in Douglaston!

rockaway is clean...for now,until the gas main gets started.

or if the recent population of sharks start getting hungry for human flesh

it's also hard to enjoy the waters there with the lack of lifeguards.

This is the same story every year. Ocean beaches are fine. Sound beaches sometimes suffer from sewer overflows. NY stats also hurt by the Great Lakes
