NEW: “Swim Guide” App to Help Swimmers Find Clean Beaches

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

 

A new smart phone application, launched today in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and the Chesapeake Region, will allow people to find safe beaches and swimming areas to recreate and enjoy their waterways.

"The Swim Guide" is free and will be available on the App Store, Google Play, or at www.theswimguide.org.

It is provided by Waterkeeper Alliance, which is a network of 200 water protection groups worldwide.

"Every year, millions of people get sick from coming into contact with polluted water at their local beaches," said Pete Nichols, National Director for the Waterkeeper Alliance. "The Swim Guide provides a free, easy to use way for beach goers to find a beach where their families can swim safely."

The Swim Guide utilizes water quality monitoring data from government authorities to determine the water quality at nearly 2,500 beaches in the U.S. and is frequently updated.

In addition to the locations in the northeast, the Swim Guide includes descriptions and photographs of beaches across North America.
