I was reading an essay by Bernard Brown about river swimming in GRID, the local sustainable magazine, and was pleasantly surprised to learn there’s a study funded by the William Penn Foundation about a proposal to build a swimming pool in one of our local rivers, building a kind of basket that would safely contain swimmers. (Yes, our rivers are clean enough to swim in. It’s the currents that are the problem.)
Now they’re working with the city recreation department to make it happen.
I’ve always thought about something like this, except my idea was for nylon mesh dividers. (I assume it’ll hold up longer.)
Anyway, nice to know that innovation is still popping up around us.
