Swimfo allows you to look up details of a designated bathing water by name or location. To get an overview of multiple bathing
water locations, or to download data extracts, see the
data page .
Water quality at designated bathing water sites in England is assessed
by the Environment Agency. From May to September, weekly assessments measure
current water quality, and at a number of sites daily pollution risk forecasts are issued.
Annual ratings classify each site as excellent, good, sufficient or poor
based on measurements taken over a period of up to four years.
