We will be monitoring rainfall and assessing the risk based on information provided by Irish Water. Additional testing of bathing waters will be carried out and published here. Water testing results are available approximately two days after sampling.
In the intervening period between the weather event/possible overspill and notification of water quality results, bathers should consider the following precautions.
- Avoid swimming if you are pregnant or have a weakened immune system.
- Avoid swimming if you have an open cut or wound.
If you do swim:
- Shower after swimming.
- Avoid swallowing water.
- Wash hands before handling food.
