We will make a final water quality decision for the Publix Grandman Triathlon at 5 p.m. Please stay tuned for results
Today we will make the final decision on whether or not we will go through with the swim portion of the Publix Grandman Triathlon, based on the test results we receive. The health and safety of our racers is our top priority - and we will not take any risks.
Mobile Baykeeper’s number one priority is the safety and health of our members and the community. We will always defer to the more protective test results and therefore at this time we are still advising swimmers to exercise caution at the Fairhope Beach.
We received many questions about our water quality e-mail on Friday - and hope this better clears things up.
Thanks to the help of a number of concerned citizens, the City of Fairhope recently discovered a breach in the outfall line from the sewage treatment plant. This is alarming because the breach is allowing treated sewage to discharge approximately 475 feet from the shore into Mobile Bay in only 3-4 feet of water.
Though millions of Alabamians are ready for summer outdoor recreation, their nearby sewage treatment facilities may not be. Alabama still lacks comprehensive regulations for minimum standards of public notification when sewage spills occur.
In honor of Earth Day, our local community is booming with fun experiences this upcoming weekend - including art gallery openings, litter cleanups, nature exhibits, and community festivals.
