Each summer, Northland Regional Council test the water quality at a number of Northland’s popular coastal and freshwater swimming spots to make sure it’s safe for swimming.

Council Environmental Health Officers will take follow up samples and put up signage to advise the public if there are any concerns about swimming water safety.
