Andrea Ramey at Local 15 in Alabama covers the launch of Swim Guide and explores the importance of keeping beaches clean and healthy.
Here’s what Baykeeper Casi Callaway had to say:
“This is a great way for you to know, if I put my 3-year-old in the water, is he or she going to be safe?” said Mobile Baykeeper Executive Director Casi Callaway.
It not only tells you if the water is safe, but it also allows you to report problems you may find, like litter or tar balls.
“You take a quick picture, and send it on its way. It comes to us, we analyze it see what needs to be done,” said Callaway.
Mobile Baykeeper manages the free app. Callaway says local and state agencies collect the data.
