CT Beach Closings Up Because of Bacteria

A report shows water samples taken at Connecticut beaches in 2010 exceeded state bacteria standards 11 percent of the time.

The report released Wednesday by the National Resources Defense Council showed Connecticut had a 32 percent increase in beach closings and advisories in 2010 over 2009.

The organization compiled test results and closings for 66 beaches along the Connecticut shoreline and tidal areas along rivers.

Two beaches in New London County had the poorest test results. According to the report, 54 percent of samples from Kiddie Beach in Waterford and 45 percent from Greens Harbor exceeded standards.  But the group says that’s not entirely unusual because both Kiddie Beach and Greens Harbor are inlets with limited tidal flushing.

Fairfield County had more beach closings than New London County.   The 28 Fairfield County beaches were closed for a total of 105 days.
