Is it safe to swim?
Be clever – don’t swim after wet weather!
Water quality in our rivers and at our beaches is generally pretty good over the summer, except in poor weather conditions. Heavy rain flushes contaminants from urban and rural land into water and we advise people not to swim for at least two days after heavy or prolonged rain – even if a site generally has good water quality.
