BeachLive - Under maintenance

BeachLive 2017

SWW Logo banner

The South West is blessed with beautiful beaches and clean seas.

BeachLive is South West Water's  free, voluntary online advisory service on bathing water quality and the performance of the waste water network.  Bathing water quality can also be affected by agricultural run-off, algae, animal waste, misconnections and urban drainage.

Following the end of the 2017 bathing water season, BeachLive is undergoing planned maintenance and further development before being switched on again in time for the 2018 bathing water season.

During or after heavy rainfall, the general rule at popular swimming spots is to think twice before entering the sea.
