Three Beaches In Granite State Rated Tops In The U.S.

Hampton Beach State Park, Wallis Sands Beach at Wallis Road, and Wallis Sands Beach State Park all got high marks for water quality according to The Natural Resources Defense Council’s annual Testing the Waters report after reviewing hundreds of coastal beaches.

The commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Tom Burack released a press release saying;

“Considering that 2013 was a difficult year for water quality because of numerous heavy rain events, New Hampshire residents can be proud of our coastal water quality and our efforts to maintain these levels. Everyone can take simple steps to prevent beach pollution in all locations. Picking up pet waste, maintaining septic systems, putting swim diapers with plastic covers on babies and keeping trash off the beach can help keep our waters clean. By working together, we can have even more “superstar” beaches in New Hampshire,”

Well I suppose congratulations are in order, although with only 13 miles of coastline to keep clean compared to, say, Massachusetts with 192 miles, I for one, would be a tad embarrassed if we weren’t at or near the top of the list. And I’m quite lazy about picking up after myself.
