Fund The Swim Guide:

Catawba Riverkeeper's Swim Guide season kickoff is just around the corner! Please help me raise an additional $10,000 to fully fund the weekly bacteria testing across the Catawba River basin.

 

With your help, we can ensure that popular swimming areas are tested for E. coli, an indicator bacteria for human health. Samples are collected on Thursdays and results are posted on Friday afternoons, in time for you to make informed decisions about swimming over the weekend.

Is It Safe To Swim Here?

That’s one of the most common questions Riverkeepers get during the summer.

To help answer that question, Catawba Riverkeeper operates a summer Swim Guide program to test popular swimming areas on local lakes.

You can help cover the costs of weekly testing.

For example:

  • $100 pays for supplies for 10 samples

  • $250 funds 8 weeks of testing for one site

  • $500 sponsors one site for the entire summer

  • $5,000 sponsors one lake for the entire summer
