9 cities making polluted waterways into swimming hotspots






Reclaiming rivers, one pool at a time Some of the world?s busiest and largest cities have long had a water problem. Historically a lifeline for trade, production, and travel, city rivers have also suffered from devastating pollution.
However, cities around the world are now working to make once-polluted rivers safe for swimming. That might seem shocking to urbanites who grew up seeing?and smelling?everything from raw sewage to trash in the waterways, but it?s no longer a pie-in-the-sky future plan. It?s actually happening.
This revolutionary idea aims to connect neglected river fronts with the people and businesses that surround them. From open-water swimming areas to filtering pools that help clean river water while people swim, we?ve rounded up impressive projects in nine different cities. Some?like a canal in Paris?have just opened, while other projects are still in the planning stages. But all show that for more and more cities, a dip in your local river could be the perfect way to cool off.
