  1. The results of the bathing water testing that came from the laboratiry on Friday last (13th Janunary 2017) showed elevated readings for bacteria for both Seapoint and Blackrock.

    As above, DLRCoCo erected prohibition signs and resampled the water last Monday (16th January 2017).

    The results from this test showed a reduction in E. Coli. and Enterococci at both locations but levels remained high at Blackrock Baths.

    The temporary prohibition signs will be removed from Seapoint bathing area, but will remain in Blackrock and the bathing water will be retested again tomorrow.

    The results of these new tests will be due back on Monday (23rd January 2017).

  2. Great news today is that the latest water samples that were taken by DLRCoCo from Blackrock foreshore last week, have been analysed and show that the bacteria levels in the water are back to normal. Accordingly, the swimming ban and advisory notice have been removed.
