Water samples are taken at regular intervals during the bathing season and at the end of the season the water quality is classified as:
  • Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
  • Good: generally good water quality
  • Sufficient: meets minimum standards
  • Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
