Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
This summary report, Bathing Water Quality in England and Wales 1997, is the second to be published by the Agency on this subject; the first report was published in 1996. Previous reports on bathing water quality in England and Wales by the NRA (1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1995) have been published by HMSO. The bathing season in England and Wales runs from 15 May to 30 September and sampling commences two weeks before the start of the season. Agency policy is that 20 samples are taken at regular intervals throughout the season at each site. All samples are taken at predetermined points off the beach of the identified bathing water where the daily average density of bathers is at its highest.
