Harrington marina and shoreline bathing water public consultation

Closed 30 Sep 2023

Opened 27 Jun 2023


Residents are being asked their thoughts on Harrington marina and shoreline bidding to become a designated bathing water.

We are considering applying to central Government for bathing water status in the Harrington area later this year.

We are conducting user surveys during the bathing water season (from May until September) and are asking residents for their thoughts.

If designated bathing water status is in place:

  • Sampling takes place during the season to make sure the water is safe to swim.
  • Signage is erected and public information about bathing water quality is provided.  
  • Measures are put in place to ensure there is no impact on wildlife or the ecosystem.
  • Investment is made to make sure the water meets the required standard.

Why your views matter

The views of our residents will help us decide whether to bid for bathing water status for the area or not. 

We would encourage everyone who’s interested in the matter to get involved with the consultation and not to miss the opportunity to let us know what they think.

What happens next

Once responses are collected and user surveys are conducted, we will then decide wether to bid for bathing water status for the area.
