Dewey and Rehoboth Beaches Earn Top Water Quality Ratings Again. Congratulations to Everyone Responsible for Maintaining Delaware's Atlantic Beaches' Pristine Conditions.
Delaware ranked first overall out of 30 states with beaches for the cleanest water quality in the United States. Delaware's Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) Secretary Collin O'Mara said, "With Delaware receiving top honors nationally and both Rehoboth Beach and Dewey Beach being recognized again by NRDC, Delaware is emerging as the most pristine beach destination in the nation."
The concerted efforts of local agricultural and retail community members, federal, state, and local government officials and regulators, industry leaders, researchers and educators, beach guards, caretakers, and visitors have made the goal of clean beach water quality a success once again. Thank you, everyone!
