Water Quality

The Solent Water Quality Award scheme has been in existence since 1992 to provide a simple and readily understood indicator of satisfactory water quality at bathing beaches and, where feasible, in recreational waters around the Solent.

The Award is given where the bathing water reaches or exceeds the standards specified in the European Community Revised Bathing Water Directive (2006/7/EC) and is based on the microbiological standards for bacteria in the water (intestinal enterococci and Escherichia coli)) required by this directive.

The results displayed are based on the bacteriological standards contained in the European Council Revised Bathing Water Directive -

Excellent: meets the higher standard

Good: meets the minimum standard

Poor: fails to meet the minimum standard.
