SWIM Guide app available

Before you take to a local beach next time, check a new app from your cell phone or computer to see if the water is clean enough for swimming. High priority beaches, like Crescent Beach, are monitored five times a week. Just released yesterday, this app will be a handy tool for anyone interested in clean water. Check it out.

Below is a release announcing the app’s launch. A link to the app follows.

Milwaukee Riverkeeper
With one of the hottest summers on record and beach season in full swing, Milwaukee Riverkeeper has released an interactive SWIM Guide to make it easy for Milwaukee area residents to find a safe beach for swimming.

The app was developed by the innovative people at Lake Ontario Waterkeeper and is now managed by Milwaukee Riverkeeper and other member groups of the Waterkeeper Alliance, a network of 200 water protection groups worldwide.

The app is being released in conjunction with Waterkeeper Alliance’s “Swimmable” Action Day, where Waterkeepers across the globe will plunge into the waters of their lakes, rivers, and ocean coasts to celebrate the act of swimming and our right to clean, swimmable waters.
