Save the Harbor/Save the Bay released their annual Beach Water Quality Report Card on the Metropolitan Region’s public beaches. The report card is based on water quality data collected during the 2019 beach season on 15 public beaches in 10 communities, including Lynn, Swampscott, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull.
In Dorchester, Savin Hill Beach has the cleanest water in the neighborhood with 92% compared to South Boston beaches – right next door with 100%. Tenean Beach came in last with the poorest quality, although the water has improved over the past few years. Hmmm, wonder if the poor quality of Tenean’s water has anything to do with Quincy’s shenanigans.
