The headline on this article is misleading. "How Polluted is Encinitas' Water? Test it from your Smartphone" makes it sound like one actually uses their smartphone to test the water in Encinitas, perhaps by using the built in camera to test water clarity, etc. But instead it appears one downloads an app which logs onto a county web site to see what the county posts as pollution levels, not exactly "test it with your smartphone" as implied.
