How safe is your beach? We talk to the State Recreational Water Quality Program Manager about testing the water at more than 200 locations, from Corolla to Sunset Beach.
When it comes to a trip to the beach, there are hazards you are aware of. Sunburn, getting caught in a rip current, stepping on a shell or piece of glass, or in very rare cases, being bitten by a shark. But there’s also hazards you may not consider, such as water quality.
