Beach time is precious time here in Western New York. With so few weeks good enough in terms of weather, plus the water safety, the time to go to the beach and swim are not many.

Unfortunately, one study is saying those beaches are among the dirtiest in New York State.

The study was done by the Environment America Research and Policy Center and they found that Erie, Chautauqua and Niagara counties were the three worst counties in the state on the list.

Woodlawn Beach was named the second-worst beach in the state, with only 55 percent of the days safe for swimming.
