Kincardine will be raising the Blue Flag high at Station Beach this summer.
The Municipality was given that honour yesterday by Environmental Defence, an environmental advocacy group.
Station Beach had to meet 27 standards in water quality, environmental management and education, and safety and services.
Recreation Supervisor Karen Kieffer says it is awesome to be awarded a Blue Flag.
She credits her staff for the accomplishment — from taking water samples to cleaning up the beach.
Kieffer says the Blue Flag will show the world that Kincardine has one of the cleanest and safest beaches.
Sauble Beach and Wasaga Beach were also given the Blue Flag designation for 2007.
