When we want to know if the water`s fine before we head to the beach, we just have to pick up our smartphone.
The Waterkeeper Swim Guide is an app that continually monitors the quality of the water at more than 7-thousand beaches across North America. It`s also good for the Baja Peninsula as well as New Zealand.
A user would simply browse a map to find the nearest beaches, and the app would find the history of bacteria-testing and confirm how consistent the water quality levels have been.
