Santa Barbara Channelkeeper launches Swim Guide in Santa Barbara:
Santa Barbara Channelkeeper Executive Director Kira Redmond said the free application designates the cleanest and safest beaches in Santa Barbara.
“We want to make sure the public has the information they need to protect the health of surfers and swimmers,” Redmond said. “Also, people who bring kids to the beach need to know if there is pollution in it and if it is safe to swim there.”
According to Redmond, most local residents are unaware of the extent of potentially hazardous degradation in their community.
“The public has a right to know about pollution, and we make sure people have that information, and that the information is current.”
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.
