Recreation information has moved to the "Can I Swim Here?" section of LAWA
This site was suitable for swimming on 91% of the occasions sampled.
Our data tells us that the source of bacteria is ruminant (sheep/cows), and therefore we recommend you stay out of the water for 48 hours after rainfall or after high river flows to avoid swimming in rural-run off that can contribute to high bacteria concentrations.
