A new episode of Sound Rivers’ podcast, “Sound Rivers: Riverkeeping Tales from the Neuse & Tar-Pamlico” is now available.

“To SWIM DRINK FISH” is all about Swim Guide: what it is, how it works, where it started and what it takes to keep it running ALL summer long! 

 Since 2017, Sound Rivers has been a part of Swim Guide, sampling and testing popular recreational sites on the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico and sharing the results with anyone who wants to know where it’s safe to swim. But we didn’t start this program. And we’re not the only ones doing it.  Swim Guide is a worldwide phenomena.

Featuring Sound Rivers Program Director Clay Barber and Volunteer Coordinator Emily Fritz, and special guest Gregary Ford from SWIM DRINK FISH, this episode dives deep into Swim Guide and its role in helping us resolve real pollution problems on the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico.

Listen to the podcast at here or search “riverkeeping” on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or Amazon Music.
