Poor water quality results reported at southern end of Cobo Bay

Share this page

Thursday 29 April 2021

Agriculture, Countryside and Land Management Services (ACLMS) is advising people to think carefully about whether to swim at the southern end of Cobo Bay after poor water quality results were taken from a nearby outfall.

ACLMS is also taking the opportunity to remind people to maintain good hand hygiene after visiting the beach.

The samples were taken by Environmental Health at the outfall at the southern end of the bay. Seawater samples that were taken demonstrate that these concerns relate purely to the outfall.

Environmental Health have undertaken extensive investigations upstream and in nearby roads to try to track the source of pollution and nearby landowners have been contacted and provided information in relation to land use.   To date there is no conclusive information to identify the source of the problem. 

If any members of the public have information on possible sources they are advised to contact the Office of Environmental Health and Pollution Regulation by emailing envhealth@gov.gg or calling 01481  221161.
