Swimfo: Find a bathing water
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.
Information about bathing water quality in other countries in the UK
can be found here:
Wales (NRW), or
Northern Ireland (DAERA)
Sorry, there are no matches for that search.
If you are searching for a postcode, please enter the entire postcode (e.g. EX12 2NF)
Sorry, either that postcode was not found, or there are no nearby bathing waters.
