North Carolina Beaches--Some of the Cleanest in the Nation
Now granted, the study released this week by the Natural Resources Defense Council is based on 2007 numbers and if you recall, in 2007 we had a severe drought which lessened the effects of runoff. But nonetheless, we still fared better than the majority of our coastal neighbors. Hopefully we will continue this trend next year and in the years to come.
