Bathing waters are not sampled every day but are sampled on a frequency of 5,10,15 or 20 samples between 1st May and 30th September depending on previous classifications and pressures identified by our local teams.
These frequencies are based on a normal year but unfortunately due to the current COVID-19 situation, lockdown or social distancing has meant we have had to reduce these frequencies.
This has both impacted our sample and collection teams from collecting the samples and the capacity for analysis at the laboratory.
