England’s bathing water results 2021

“We are extremely pleased to hear that 99% of our beaches in England have passed the standards set by the Environment Agency.  This is good news and whilst it is a cause for celebration of the great work from all the partners involved in achieving this outcome we must not become complacent.  We know that our rivers and drainage systems are a cause for concern and ultimately will impact on water quality.  We must continue to work together with partners such as DEFRA, EA and utility companies to do all we can to ensure we protect the quality of our bathing waters.” Councillor Jane Hugo, Coastal Water Quality Member Champion
