Get information about the water quality at various sites within Christchurch and Banks Peninsula.
Even the cleanest spots can be unsuitable to swim in from time to time when they get contaminated. We recommend you avoid swimming during or shortly after rainfall as urban or agricultural run-off may result in high bacterial counts.
