Forecasting

Beach Report forecasts officially recommenced December 1 2014 and will continue to do so until the Labour Day long weekend in March 2015.

Forecasts for 36 bay beaches are issued twice a day, Good predicts that recreational water quality is suitable for swimming, Fair means that recreational water quality is good but could be affected by rainfall particularly if the beach is close to a stormwater outlet, and Poor is a warning which means you should avoid contact with the water.

An alert will be issued via this website and Twitter when water quality is Unacceptable for swimming.

Forecasts are based on the recreational water quality history of the beach, currents, predicted rainfall and sunlight.

Create your free online surveys with SurveyMonkey , the world's leading questionnaire tool.
