WATER QUALITY INFORMATION AT YOUR FAVORITE SWIM SITE

Swim Guide is a website and smartphone app for iPhone® and Android. It helps you to easily find your closest swim site, know at a glance if it is safe for swimming, and share your love of the river with friends and family.

Swim Guide:

Alabama Water Watch is a citizen volunteer, water quality monitoring program covering all of the major river basins of the state. The mission of AWW, a Swim Guide affiliate, is to improve both water quality and water policy through citizen monitoring and action.

LET US KNOW if you are interested in learning to be a water monitor. You can join the Swimguide team, administered by FLFR, Alabama Water Watch (AWW), and Waterkeeper Alliance. Help to prevent waterborne illnesses, making it easy for everybody to know if their swim sites are safe, or contaminated with bacteria.

FLFR and AWW have collected over 25 years of water quality data on the Locust Fork River and now information about bacteria at swim sites will be at everybody's fingertips through the mobile app.

More monitors means more data at more sites!
