This is pieces of an article in today's Beach Times:
Playa Tamarindo, along with seven of the country’s beaches, was given a clean bill of health last week.
The ruling, announced last week by the Costa Rican Water and Sewerage Authority (AyA) comes almost 12 months to the day the Ministry of Health deemed Tamarindo “unsafe for swimming”.
The overall improvement of the beach’s water quality is the result of a strong effort of coordination between the Minister of Health, and the Tamarindo community, continued Dr Mora.
Federico Amador, representative for the Tamarindo Association (Asociación de Pro Mejoras de Playa Tamarindo, or APMT) agreed a strong community commitment, including efforts by organizations like the Tamarindo chapter of the Surfrider Foundation, helped to drastically turn the tide on Tamarindo’s water quality.
