If you’re headed to Ontario Beach in Monroe County anytime this summer beware. A national report shows that the beach is one of the most polluted in the Country.
A report on water quality of vacation beaches put out by the Natural Resources Defense Council said water samples taken from the Beach exceeded maximum federal bacteria standards.
The report links the potential cause of high pollution to storm water, sewer overflow, sanitary sewer overflow, and concentrated animal feeding done near the water.
The Beach located in Charlotte, New York was closed Wednesday due to high bacteria levels.
