State of the beaches

The State of the beaches report presents the results of water quality monitoring at recreational swimming around Sydney.

With data from the Beachwatch and Harbourwatch programs, the report is a scorecard of recreational water quality measured at estuarine sites in Sydney and along the coast from the Illawarra to the Hunter. 

Related information can be found in the Beachwatch Partnership Program which developed protocols for assisting coastal councils to monitor recreational water quality.
