Waterkeeper Swim Guide and The Weather Network announce new partnership to help you plan a better day at the beach

(August 28, 2015 — Toronto) — Swim Guide, the most helpful beach information service on the web, has teamed up with Pelmorex Media, owner and operator of The Weather Network and MétéoMédia, to help people plan a better day at the beach.

Using information provided by Swim Guide, the Weather Network now offers Beach Reports for 6,000 beaches from coast to coast in North America. Canadians can now access Beach Reports from the Weather Network’s website, check recent water quality information, and use the information to choose cleaner beaches.

By making it easier for Canadians to access water quality information, Swim Guide hopes to empower people to protect their health and promote environmental stewardship.

July 9, 2015

Lazy rivers braided through swamps and salt marshes. Spanish moss and pecan trees veiling the full might of the Atlantic. Fat alligators and Blackbeard’s ghost. These are Georgia’s waters.

We absolutely love having Georgia on Swim Guide.

Thanks to the Satilla Riverkeeper’s water quality monitoring program we are now able to offer Swim Guide users water quality information for the Satilla River system.
