Beachwatch results

Wednesday 3 February 2016

Sapphire Coast beaches have returned mixed results from the Office of Environment and Heritage in this week’s Beachwatch testing.

Most of our beaches in the Bega Valley Shire received a high rating, with results showing less than 200 Enterococci colony forming units (CFU) per 100ml of water.

Due to the storms last weekend Mogareeka Inlet, Short Point beach and Bar beach are not suitable for swimming.

The threshold for water not suitable for swimming is more than 201 enterococci CFU/100ml.

Beachgoers can swim and play with confidence, knowing that the Sapphire Coast still offers some of the cleanest beaches in NSW.
