Clay Barber demonstrates sampling in a new instructional video for this year’s Swim Guide volunteers.

Preparation for a fifth season of Swim Guide is in full swing at Sound Rivers!

Sound Rivers’ interns, who will be coordinating the program under Environmental Projects Coordinator Clay Barber, start next week and will get a full introduction to volunteer coordinating, sampling and testing those samples for the presence of E. coli. With more than 50 sites throughout the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico watersheds to be tested this year, Swim Guide illustrates the general health of your waterways, at the same time letting water lovers know where it’s safe to swim all summer long — on a weekly basis. The program officially launches Memorial Day weekend and runs through Labor Day weekend, and we’ll be sharing results every Friday afternoon HERE and on social media.
