Beach Report Card Released, LA Beaches - The Good And The Bad

Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

(FOX 11) Heal the Bay's annual beach report card is out... and it's good news/ bad news for Southern California. An analysis of water quality over the past year found more than 90% percent of SoCal beaches are above average when it comes to cleanliness- getting a grade of A's and B's. But there's an infamous list of the dirtiest beaches in California, with grades of F's... And in that top 10 are 2 in Orange County and 4 in Los Angeles County.

Here's the 2013 "Beach Bummers" list of the most polluted:

1. Avalon, Catalina Island - LA County

2. Cowell Beach, Santa Cruz - Santa Cruz County

3. Poche Beach - Orange County 4. Cabrillo Beach, harbor side - LA County

5. Malibu Pier - LA County

6. Marina Lagoon - San Mateo County

7. Doheny State Beach, Dana Point - Orange County

8. Redondo Beach Pier - LA County

9. Windsurfer Circle - San Francisco County

10. Tijuana River Mouth - San Diego County

Some of our local beaches did make the "Honor Roll". Among the A+ beaches: Hermosa Beach, Leo Carillo State Beach in Malibu, the Wedge in Newport Beach and Cabrillo Beach oceanside.
