SOURCE INFORMATION

Tasman Regional Council measures water quality at 26 beaches and swim sites. The monitoring program runs on a two-yearly sampling cycle. One year all sites are sampled and the following year a reduced number of sites are tested. The most popular swim sites continue to be monitored during the reduced schedule.

The council 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.

Pulse Energy updates Swim Guide for the latest water quality information daily, Monday - Friday during the swimming season.

A beach has a GREEN current status in Swim Guide when it has met the water quality standard of <140 enterococci/100 mL and has a rank of GREEN.
