In California overall, 88% of the beaches received A grades.  This was the best water quality grade in recent memory, according to the report, which stated “record low rainfall this year, which limited polluted urban runoff in storm drain systems, played a major role in better water quality.”  [Editor’s note: Love clean beaches, but I’d trade for more rain.]

In Marin, 91% of the of 23 beaches received A scores, while in West Marin, all the beaches got As and most got A+s.
