Waterkeeper Alliance Celebrates Swimmable Waters Action Day
On July 26, Waterkeeper Alliance celebrated Swimmable Waters Action Day and encouraged everybody to take time out and enjoy their local waterways. The event was organized as a reminder that access to clean, swimmable water isn't something that can be taken for granted.
Laws like the Clean Water Act and water advocacy organizations like Waterkeeper Alliance and its member programs across the globe make it possible to maintain water quality that is safe for swimming. As part of the action, Waterkeeper Alliance asked people to share their swim pictures on the Waterkeeper Alliance Facebook page.
For your Friday moment of Zen, we thought we would share those pictures with the hope that they inspire you to pack up friends, family and water-loving pets and head out to your local waterway this weekend. Enjoy!
To see more of Waterkeeper Alliance's great work, check out their new interactive online magazine. The current edition was just released yesterday. It highlights the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act and how the law is vital to swimmable, fishable and drinkable waters. The magazine has clean water videos embedded in the digital pages that play when you "turn" the page. Check it out if you want to extend your water-themed Friday moment of Zen.

Non-perishable foods, such as canned goods and dried fruit, have a long shelf life and don't require refrigeration to keep them from spoiling. Instead, they can be stored at room temperature, such as in a pantry or cabinet.

- While the flu vaccine isn't a perfect match, it's the best defense against the flu.
To say this flu season has been abnormal is an understatement.
