None of Orange County's beaches was on Heal the Bay's list this year as a "bummer" for water quality.

"This year's report card is welcome news," Orange County Supervisor Patricia Bates said.

"We have been very committed to discovering why certain beaches had poor water quality and took some very creative steps to fix the problems. Orange County's beaches are a beacon for residents and tourists, and we want to keep them clean and inviting."
