Beach app explains water quality information

Posted: Updated:
CORONADO (CBS 8) - Just in time for summer, there's now an app for your smartphone that will tell you whether or not it's safe to go in the water at the beach.

The free app uses QR, or quick release, codes that sends users to, which has information on water quality at local beaches.

On Monday, the county Department of Environmental Health and Supervisor Greg Cox introduced the app, which was launched last month.

"This is going to make beach-going not only safer, but certainly more enjoyable and more convenient for all of the people who enjoy going to the beach," Cox said.
