With summer in full swing, beachgoers should beware: It might not be safe to go in the water.

The study, Safe for Swimming?, looked at fecal bacteria levels at beaches in 29 coastal and Great Lakes states as well as Puerto Rico.

The U.S. House approved a host of provisions today to address widespread drinking water contamination from toxic per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The annual defense spending bill would phase out the military’s use of PFAS-containing firefighting foams by 2025 — a major source of drinking water contamination. The bill would also designate all PFAS chemicals as hazardous substances under Superfund and toxic pollutants under the Clean Water Act, spurring cleanup and reducing discharges into waterways, respectively.
