Latest tests of the bathing water quality at Clevedon Marine Lake show that it is now excellent. This means that the sample of water that we tested on June 23rd has very low levels of bacteria, and the lake meets EU standards.
This is great news. It follows a period of low water quality where there were too many bacteria for safe bathing. The change is likely to have happened because UV (ultra-violet) light kills bacteria and because fewer people swam in the lake because of the water quality warning.
Help keep the lake clean
You can help keep the lake clean by following a few simple rules:
No dogs in or around the lake – dogs carry germs
Take your litter home
Avoid overcrowding – if the lake is too busy, come back later
