Auckland Council runs a Safeswim monitoring programme at a number of beaches during the summer season from November to March. Beach water is tested weekly and results are made available to the public through the Auckland Council’s Safeswim website: www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/safeswim or by calling 0800 723 379.
The routine monitoring results are uploaded on this website on a weekly basis. We strongly advise you to take appropriate precautions to check the latest updates on Auckland Council’s Safeswim website or call 0800 723 379 before swimming or participating in other contact water activities.
We also recommend that you obey signs against swimming, not swimming 48 hours after heavy rain, avoid swimming in high risk areas such as stormwater outfalls and stream mouths.
