95 percent of San Luis Obispo County beaches got high marks - grades of A or B, in a study released by Heal the Bay, on October 20, 2010. The exception was the monitoring station at Pismo Beach Pier that received a C. The C grade was however, an improvement over the previous year's grade of D. Another good news was that no sewage spills were reported in the County during summer
The study covered 450 beaches in California that were graded based on bacterial pollution levels from Memorial Day through Labor Day. 92 percent of these beaches showed good-to-excellent water quality.
Heal the Bay, the non-profit organization had been conducting its annual beach report card for the past twenty years. The testing costs about $1.5 million each year and may be impacted by the statewide budget crisis, which could reduce state funding for water testing. For more info, visit www.healthebay.org
