Healthy Water: New Look, Materials, and Spanish Pages
We have worked over the past several months to spruce up our Healthy Water website. Some changes you will notice include:
- New look. We redesigned and reorganized the site to make it easier to find what you’re looking for across all of our topics (for example, cross-cutting topics like Publications, Data, and Statistics).
- New materials. You’ll see new resources throughout the site, including:
- New Spanish pages. Visit our new Spanish portal in our Healthy Swimming section. Natación saludable: información en español includes 15 pages of information in Spanish on healthy swimming and preventing recreational water illness.
