High water marks- Beaches in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Swampscott show improvement

  Photo-Owen O’Rourke / Item Photo Posted: Wednesday, May 27, 2015 3:00 am By Cyrus Moulton / The Daily Item State beaches in Nahant and Revere passed 100 percent of local water quality tests in 2014, while King’s Beach in Lynn and Swampscott passed 88 percent of last year’s tests.

But while pleased, the report’s authors noted that dry weather contributed to the positive results — a signal that potentially expensive and time-consuming stormwater and/or sewer fixes are needed to maintain the progress, particularly at King’s Beach. “It was a good year overall, and it was a good year for King’s; but that’s because it was a dry year,” Bruce Berman, spokesman for Save the Harbor/Save the Bay said Tuesday. “When you look at Tenean (Beach, in Dorchester) or …
