Share your favorite swimming holes

Written by 

out swimmingholesDon’t be greedy and keep your favorite swimming hole for yourself. A regional environmental organization is developing a new guide for swim holes to direct locals, hikers and tourist to the closest and cleanest swim holes in the region.

 

Western North Carolina Alliance is asking people about their favorite swim spots to help complete the guide, which will be made into a app.

One of the most common questions received by the organization is “Is my stream clean for swimming?” The swim guide, along with the locations of the swimming spots, will include the water quality data from government agencies to provide information, such as the levels of E. Coli in the water.
