RECREATIONAL WATER RESULTS
Sampling of Recreational Water is required under the provisions of the Recreational Water Quality Guidelines as prescribed by the Public Health Act 1997. The Australian Guidelines for Recreational Use of Water provide for the procedures and prescribed limits for the different uses for the water. Consideration has only been given to the highest class of use, Primary contact.

The Recreational Water Quality Guidelines 2007 (Public Health Act 1997) sets the base limit for microbiological standards for investigation as greater than 140 enterococci/100ml.
Resampling must be undertaken within 48 hours of becoming aware of a 140/100ml enterococci sample and conduct appropriate sanitary inspection.
Where two consecutive samples are greater than 280/100ml, the public must be advised if primary contact water body and resampling must be undertaken immediately within 48 hours of becoming aware of the result. Any decision to remove an advisory sign shall be determined in conjunction with the Director of Public Health.
As shown all commonly used recreational sites comply with the microbiological guidelines of a median value of not more than <140 cfu/100mL Enterococci.
