Sewer, Swim, and SWAMP: Making the Environment More Accessible through Technology

Mobile Baykeeper Office. 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. 

In this upcoming Lunch & Learn, we will show you the important role in which technology plays in making the environment more accessible to the community. We will do this by highlighting three different programs we utilize:

1) Sewage Spill Explorer: Do you want to learn how you can track sewer spills in your neighborhood? Created by Mobile Baykeeper Program Staff, this web tool allows citizens to explore the amount, location, and severity of sanitary sewer overflow (SSO) events in Coastal Alabama in a visually appealing, user-friendly manner.

2) Swim Guide: Created and managed by Lake Ontario Waterkeeper, Swim Guide is a website and smartphone app that helps you easily find your closest beaches, know at a glance which ones are safe for swimming, and share your love of beaches with friends and family. It can be used by any public interest club, organization, or agency to share beach information with the public. Mobile Baykeeper is responsible for updating the water quality status of 23 different Swim Guide locations in Mobile and Baldwin County once the water is tested by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM).  

3) "Issue Reporter" Web Tool: A free platform for citizen scientists to record observations about water, the Water Rangers "Issue Reporter" web tool is an essential component of Mobile Baykeeper's Strategic Watershed Awareness and Monitoring Program (SWAMP) by enabling citizens to monitor water quality and report pollution in Coastal Alabama.
