PostSubject: Merseyside’s beaches are best in the North West for water quality    Fri May 27, 2011 5:03 pm

FOUR of the five cleanest beaches in the North West are in Merseyside, the Marine Conservation Society (MSC) has revealed.
This year, only one failed the annual clean water tests – Thurstaston, in Wirral – while three beaches improved.
Southport and Formby beaches were awarded higher standards than the previous year, along with Red Rocks in Hoylake.
Wirral’s West Kirby beach slipped a rank, but was still awarded a basic pass by MSC.




Those declared among the cleanest in the UK were Formby, New Brighton, Moreton and Meols.
Thurstaston beach failed for a second year. Responding to the survey
results, Wirral Cllr Brian Kenny said: “The MCS acknowledges the North
West was one of the wettest areas in the UK last summer.
“Thurstaston Beach is subject to heavy rain and surface water
run-off from surrounding farmland which affects the quality of bathing
waters.”
