Event Details

As many of you may know there is a sewage outlet pipe on Shoalstone Beach to the east of the pool. This is normally closed, but can be opened in instances of heavy rain to relieve pressure on the sewage processing system. We monitor this outlet via the Safer seas initiative and it has been open for the past three days during the recent rain. This means that the water contained within the pool is potentially contaminated with sewage as the pool is filled by the incoming tide.  We are now concerned about the quality of the water currently in the pool and will need to drain it to make it safe. The tides are against us prior to New Years Eve and we will not be able to drain and refill in time for the planned swim. It’s with huge regret that we’ve taken the decision to cancel our planned end of year swim. We do not want to put any swimmers at risk of illness due to poor water quality.
