Pollution Along beaches Increasing
Orange County, California (CNN) A new report finds beaches in the U-S continued to be affected by serious contamination and pollutants from human and animal waste.
That's according to an annual study by the Natural Resource Defense Council.
The "Testing the Waters" report looked at more than three-thousand beaches last year.
The report found that the number of days American beaches were closed or had posted advisories because of contaminated water dropped 3-percent in 2011, but they were still at their third-highest level in 22 years.
