Front page of the Metro section on Saturday, July 9 2011 … check out the full page spread about Swim Guide:
Swim Guide, a website and free Android app that gives real-time updates of the water quality along the lake looks to be a strong move in the right direction. “This is the coolest thing we’ve ever done,” says Mattson, a 49-year-old ex-criminal lawyer who’s been the head of Waterkeepers for the past 10 years, as he shows off the app. “Hopefully, people will see all our beaches, visit them and fall in love with them again.”
Swim Guide shares the best information we have at the moment you ask for it. Always obey signs at the beach or advisories from official government agencies. Stay alert and check for other swimming hazards such as dangerous currents and tides. Please report your pollution concerns so Affiliates can help keep other beach-goers safe.
