and a little bad news too

Heal the Bay released their 15th annual beach report just in time for memorial day, measuring the water quality along the california coast. overall, we're not doing too badly:

"most beaches had very good water quality, with 278 of 346 (80%) locations receiving very good-to-excellent (A and B) grades for the year during dry weather."

but the non-profit also lists their top 10 "beach bummers" - the top 10 beaches with the poorest dry weather water quality. and guess which county has the highest percentage? san diego county doesn't even come close.
