Forecasting

Between December 1st 2016 and March 13 2017, Beach Report forecasts for 36 bay beaches 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.

Forecasts are also available on Twitter and forecast signs at life saving club beaches (on weekend and public holidays).

Beach Report forecast sign at a beach

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

Forecasts are based on observed and predicted rainfall, recreational water quality history, sunlight, weekly sampling and pollution reports.
