‘Excellent’ bathing water recorded at Co Wicklow beaches

The bathing water quality is said to be ‘excellent’ at beaches throughout county Wicklow, according to the latest report.

Wicklow County Council took water samples on Monday at six Identified and seven non-Identified bathing waters to ensure excellent water quality at a number of beaches.

The council monitors bathing areas along its coastline during the bathing season, which runs from 1 June to 15 September each year.

There are six bathing waters identified under the Bathing Water Regulations 2008.

These are Bray South Promenade, Greystones South Beach, Silver Strand, Brittas Bay North Beach, Brittas South Beach and Clogga Beach.

The non-identified bathing waters in the county are South of Bray Harbour, Kilcoole Beach, The Murrough Wicklow, Wicklow Harbour Bathing Area, Wicklow Harbour Lifeboat Area and Arklow South Beach.

Due to elevated Enterococci levels at Clogga Beach, re-sampling occurred this morning and results will be posted within the coming days. Swimming is still permitted at this beach.
