En ny undersøgelse viser farligt høje bakterietællinger i vandet ved strande over hele Amerika

2021

Sommeren er sjov og leg, indtil du finder ud af, at der er fækale bakterier, der forurener din lokale strand.

Det er præcis, hvad der sker på offentlige svømmeområder rundt omkring i landet ifølge John Rumpler, programlederen for rent vand ved Miljøamerika Research and Policy Center.

Centret frigav en undersøgelse i juli, der undersøgte farlige bakterieniveauer ved strande i 29 kyststater og Great Lakes-stater. Undersøgelsen viser antallet af dage i 2018, hvor vandet havde fækale bakterietællinger, der overskrider miljøbeskyttelsesstyrelsens standarder, hvilket kan sætte svømmere i fare for at blive syge.

"Det er svært at tro, at 47 år efter at vi vedtog loven om rent vand, at vi stadig er bekymrede for bæsj i vandet, når folk vil svømme, " sagde Rumpler til USA Today.

Næsten 60 procent af de 4.523 strande, der blev testet landsdækkende, havde mindst et tilfælde farligt høje forureningsniveauer i vandet.

Bliv ikke narre af udsigten: En del af Myrtle Beach lavede listen!

Mens de fleste stater prioriterer at lukke offentlige svømmeområder og udstede advarselsskilte til strandgæsterne, når forureningsniveauer er høje, skal du kontrollere rapporter om vandkvalitet, inden du rammer sandet.
