Treehugger.com highlights how Swim Guide helps present waterborne illnesses:
On a hot summer day, there’s nothing like a dip in the ocean to cool off. Unless that little dip lands you in the sickbed. According to Pete Nichols, of the Waterkeeper Alliance, millions of people get sick each year from coming into contact with polluted water at their local beaches. But a new free app could help you find the cleanest beaches for swimming, surfing, or otherwise enjoying the ocean.
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.
