DEWEY BEACH, Del. (AP) — Two beaches along the Maryland and Delaware shore have made the list of the nation's cleanest beaches.
Delaware's Dewey Beach and Maryland's Ocean City Beach 6 have earned a five-star rating. The Natural Resources Defense Council found that they were among a dozen beaches that follow best practices and violated health standards less than 5 percent of the time.
The environmental group is releasing its annual assessment of 3,000 beach sites on Wednesday.
