A do not swim notice has been put in place at Rush South Beach following water samples taken today Friday, 22 June 2018. The notice will remain in place pending further sampling which will be carried out early next week. Water sampling results are expected on Wednesday 27 June.
Following advice from the HSE the Bathing Water Notice will remain in place at Rush South Beach due to malfunction of the pumps which caused an over flow at East Shore/ Tower Road.
Separately a bathing prohibition is in place for the entire 2018 bathing season at Rush South beach due to general water quality, however, the Environmental Protection Agency have instructed Fingal County Council to continue to declare incidents at this beach whenever they occur.
We regret the impact this may have on beach users. A notice is displayed at the beach and on the EPA website at www.beaches.ie advising the public of the restrictions.
