In its study, COFEPRIS revealed which are the beaches with the highest levels of pollution on Mexican coasts and which are those with the most fecal waste in their waters. It was found that several almost exceed the limits allowed at the sanitary level, which are 200 enterococci (Enterococcus faecalis) per 100 milliliters.
These bacteria, which are found within the group of microorganisms that indicate fecal contamination of the waters, are considered the most efficient element for determining whether seawater can be used for recreational purposes or not, since beach destinations represent a great attraction for national and foreign tourism.
