Quality of Michigan beaches measured by resource council

DETROIT (WKZO) -- Michigan is right in the middle of the Beachwater Quality report released by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

The council ranks the state 15th out of the 30 states reviewed.  Only six-percent of the state's beaches had higher bacteria levels than considered acceptable by national standards.

Additionally there were 20-percent fewer beach closings or advisories in 2012, compared to the previous year.
