Farandwide com says the ocean is dangerously polluted at Magnolia Beach, TX?
Asked by Rod Collet over 1 year ago
Answer: The part of the ocean shore where Magnolia Beach is located features several ports and industrial plants. Also, this region is separated from the ocean by long barrier islands with just a few narrow straits. This prevents dirt from dispersing all over the ocean, and it accumulates in the bays. Also, ocean waters all along the Texas coast are known to have a brownish color. Despite being polluted, Magnolia Beach remains a popular camping place. It's up to you to decide whether to swim or not.
