Red flag raised at 13 Saipan beaches
The Division of Environmental Quality has red-flagged 13 beaches on Saipan after samples showed excessive concentrations of fecal indicator bacteria. The affected beaches are the Paupau Beach, Nikko Hotel, Central Repair Shop, DPW Channel Bridge, South Puerto Rico Dump, Smiling Cove Marina, American Memorial Park Drainage, Outer Cove Marina, Drainage #1 (Dai-Ichi Hotel Drainage), Garapan Beach, Civic Center Beach, CK Dist #4 (Lally Beach), and Hopwood School Beach... A great new "impossible dream" revitalization plan for Garapan, but polluted beaches still exist. Aren't you getting as tired of this, as I am? Why don't we just wring hands and cry crocodile tears, and maybe this will just go away.... .....GED.....
