Rivers fit to Swim in!

Updated: Sep 13


Boston.com reports: Summer means swimming, and the Charles River is getting in on the action. “Love that dirty water? Too bad! It’s clean! Let’s go swimming!” the Charles River Conservancy wrote on Facebook Thursday.


Yup, that once dirty water is now swimmable, but you and your swim group will have to register ahead of time. The CitySplash Swim the Charles event is Tuesday, July 12 from 2 to 6 p.m. This marks the fourth year in a row that the Conservancy is letting Bostonians jump—but no flips off the dock, please—into the river.
