Southland Regional Council measures water quality at 13 marine bathing and seven freshwater bathing sites during summer (December to March).

Freshwater sites are tested for E.coli levels and toxic algae blooms. Beaches with elevated levels of bacteria are tested more regularly.

The council issues an AMBER alert if a single sample level of E.coli are greater than 260 units / 100 ml of water. 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 when no single sample is greater than 260 E. coli/100 mL and has a rank of GREEN.

A beach has a RED current status in Swim Guide when a single sample is greater than 260 E. coli/100 mL and there is an AMBER or RED rank.

A beach is marked Grey in Swim Guide when there is no current or reliable monitoring information available.
