Delaware’s beaches have again been lauded for having the cleanest water quality in the nation, with the state also celebrated for boasting two of the country’s few “Superstar Beaches,” according to the National Resources Defense Council, the non-partisan international environmental advocacy group that annually assesses all beaches in 30 coastal states.
Two of the state’s most popular beaches, Rehoboth and Dewey, were again awarded 5-star ratings as Superstar Beaches for their perfect swimming water quality for the past four years. They were two of only 13 Superstar Beaches designated by the NRDC among beaches of the coastal states.
In its report “Testing the Waters in Delaware,” release last week, the NRDC also recognized the Delaware Department of Natural Resource’s Recreational Water Quality Testing Program as one of the most comprehensive in the nation.
