Testing the Water at Bayview Baths

Northern Beaches Council will push ahead with further water testing at Bayview Baths on Pittwater as a prelude to possible refurbishment.

On Tuesday night, Council adopted a recommendation to participate in another round of water testing with Sydney Water and the Office of Environment and Heritage at the site in 2018/19.

Should this testing prove successful, Council has resolved to work collaboratively with the community and funding agencies to secure grant funding for future refurbishment.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said testing in October and November 2016 indicated that water quality was generally suitable for swimming in dry weather.

“It’s good news, as these results mean the Baths are still in contention as a swimming location, and so refurbishment may be considered.

“The Baths require a significant upgrade to improve the facility,” Mayor Regan said.

The baths received a ‘good’ rating in the 2016/17 Beachwatch report, largely due to it being a dry year, following a ‘poor’ rating in the two prior years.

Council follows the Beachwatch recommendation for estuarine swimming areas affected by stormwater outflows, which says swimming should be avoided for up to three days following rainfall.
