Culdaff Beach is to reopen after short-term ‘Swim Restriction’ notice was issued due to pollution at the popular Inishowen Blue Flag beach.
The 72-hour warning was issued by Donegal County Council as a result of an ‘increase in bacteria’ found in bathing water samples taken on Wednesday.
Now samples taken at the beach have proved clear and the beach is to reopen today.
Culdaff Beach is classified as achieving Excellent Water Quality in 2020 based on the assessment of bacteriological results for the period 2017 to 2020.
It also achieved an Excellent Water Quality rating for the four consecutive years 2017 to 2020.
Annual water quality ratings are generally calculated using monitoring results over a four year period and are assessed against stringent bacterial limits to protect bather health.
