Where Is It Safe to Swim in Lower Alabama? There’s an App for That.

Mobile Baykeeper started Swim Where It’s Monitored (SWIM), a program through which local communities can sponsor bacteriological monitoring at sites of their choosing. Once a week during warmer (swim season) months, and once a month during winter, the Baykeeper AmeriCorps Patrol Team collects water quality data at each of these sponsored sites.

With over 1,500 people educated, 40 presentations given, and 715 surveys taken since September, SWAMP is off to an amazing start! We are extremely excited to bring watershed awareness and education to Mobile and Baldwin counties and are working hard to reach as many students and citizens as possible.

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.
