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.”
