While Texans frolic at the beach this summer, an environmental group is ready to report on the cleanliness of the water.
Environment Texas is scheduled Wednesday to release its annual report on beach closings and water quality. "Testing the Waters: A
Guide to Water Quality at Vacation Beaches" is part of a 19th annual study by the Natural Resources Defense Council covering more than 6,000 beaches across the country.
Environment Texas tracks which beaches had pollution problems with sewage and bacteria and which ones tested clean.
