Clean Water Swimming App
For the last couple of years, our group has been involved with monitoring the recreational water quality of Flathead Lake's swimming areas through The Swim Guide, an app (iPhone and Android) and web-based platform.
We even made our local 5-o'clock news!
Started by the Lake Ontario Waterkeepers in Toronto, there are now over 7,000 beaches and swimming holes being monitored in six countries, and over 2-million users since 2011.
In addition to the real time water quality, the app provides:
• Directions to the closest beaches • Descriptions and amenities • Social media sharing of beach stories • Report pollution
Kind of fun if you're looking for CLEAN places to swim.
