More About Water Quality
From a water sample taken on 06/10/23.
Results are deemed 'Excellent' as stated for Coastal and Transitional waters in The Bathing Water Regulations 2013
The water in Clevedon Marine Lake is tested every two weeks* from May to September. It is rated against EU bathing water standards as: excellent, good, sufficient or poor.
Poor water quality usually happens when:
There is a heatwave, loads of people use the lake and water temperatures exceed 22 degrees centigrade;
The lake is over-topped with water from the Bristol Channel during a pollution warning.
When this happens, you should take extra care to keep yourself well. We recommend:
Using goggles and earplugs when you swim;
Using hand sanitiser as soon as you leave the water;
Washing your hands before you eat;
Showering when you get home;
Avoiding swimming when the lake is warm and crowded;
Avoiding swimming when the lake has topped over after a storm.
You always use Clevedon Marine Lake at your own risk. Please remember that it is a natural body of water that contains sea life.
*It takes 48 hours to process a water quality test.
