A nice shout-out for Oregon Waterkeeper members and Swim Guide on the west coast from Oregon Live:

Unofficially, summertime is here. That means coastal tourism is beginning to boom after a winter of cold, stormy seas.

Luckily, several useful apps can help guide your summer seashore sojourns.

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.
