New Hampshire Beaches Get High Marks For Water Quality
Three beaches in New Hampshire are getting high marks for clean water quality.
The beaches are Hampton Beach State Park, Wallis Sands Beach at Wallis Road, and Wallis Sands State Park beach.
The Natural Resources Defense Council put them at "superstar" status along with 32 other beaches nationally in its annual "Testing the Waters" report.
