SOURCE INFORMATION

Auckland Council’s Safeswim program monitors water quality throughout Auckland's Coastal and Freshwater beaches. The monitoring season starts the first week of November until the end of March. Sampling takes place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and results are expected in time for the weekend.

Marine Water standards are measured by enterococci levels unless the beach is located near a waste treatment plant, in which case E.coli levels are also be tested.

Safeswim issues an amber alert if a single sample level of enterococci are greater than 140 units / 100 ml of water. Daily testing would occur to determine if the problem is ongoing. When two consecutive results show Enterococci levels higher than 280 units / 100ml of water warnings are posted. Signs will also be posted at beaches and until water levels return to a safe level.
