well over the last year ive noticed days in my area,which were more nasty then ive ever seen my whole life. so ended up looking on this website and found out that the local beach is going to **** 33% increase of ecoli... the information is here, you know your local governments wont let it out for the areas that have high tourism i was always under the impression that our water was top notch and is for the most part i would say.
