The Nature Resources Defense Council named Ocean City, Md. as one of the cleanest beaches in the nation.

Maryland's Ocean City and Delaware's Dewey Beach have a new feather in their proverbial cap to boast about to tourists this year, as the Nature Resources Defense Council named both resort towns here on the coast near the top of the list among the nation's cleanest beaches.

More than 3,000 beach sites nationwide were tested in regards to water quality, cleanliness and violating health standards.

Both Dewey and Ocean City received five-star ratings as they were found to have violated good practices or health standards less than 5 percent of the time.

In addition, Delaware ranked first among 30 states in the study for water quality.
