Waterkeeper recently released an app to help beachgoers locate the cleanest & closest beaches in & around NYC and other areas of the US and Canada. Information is updated in real time from official data, so you can easily see if yesterday’s storm made an impact on today’s water quality. They also have pictures and brief descriptions of beaches.
To find the safest place to swim near you, download the free Swim Guide app for both iPhone & Android phones. You can also view the information online here.
