BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — A new report from a Massachusetts nonprofit advocacy group finds that water quality is improving at most, but not all Greater Boston area beaches.

According to the data from Save the Harbor, Save the Bay, overall water quality at 15 local beaches stood at 93% in 2020 -- compared to 89% in 2019.

That list includes beaches like Nahant on the North Shore, to Nantasket on the South Shore.

Beaches including Carson Beach, City Point and Pleasure Bay in South Boston all received perfect scores -- along with Revere Beach and Winthrop Beach.

The areas that received lower scores include Tenean Beach in Dorchester, and King's Beach in Lynn and Swampscott.

According to the report, those beaches are designated "unsafe" for swimming on more than one out of every five days.
