Temporary Do Not Swim Notice For Ross Beach
Mayo County Council wishes to advise the public that a temporary DO NOT SWIM notice has been put in place at Ross Beach this afternoon, Wednesday, 14th July 2021 following receipt of an elevated enterococci result from a water sample taken on Monday 12th July 2021. Arrangements have been made for resampling of the bathing water with results expected to be available before Saturday next.
Mr. Martin Keating, Head of Environment, Climate Change and Agriculture stated that “the result is disappointing having regard to the excellent water quality results from the previous number of samples. Investigations have commenced in the catchment to identify the possible cause behind this result. We are fortunate however to have many beaches with excellent water quality in Mayo which will provide alternatives for bathing during this period”.
