In May, 2013, Eye on Annapolis profiled West/Rhode Riverkeeper’s water quality monitoring efforts:
For countless residents and visitors, Memorial Day signals the unofficial start of summer – and the summer swimming season. Getting information about the water quality of our local waterways has just become a whole lot easier with the launch of the Swim Guide, a new, free, smartphone app available from App Store, Google Play, or www.theswimguide.org. West/Rhode Riverkeeper began it’s summer bacteria sampling program on May 22, and results are now available online.
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.
