Areas Affecting Bathing Waters

Natural Resources Wales

This dataset comprises of polygons relating to each site identified under the Bathing Water Directive (76/160/EEC); however these polygons have no formal status under the Bathing Water Directive. Where a site corresponds to a Sensitive Area under the Urban Waste Water Treatment Directive (UWWTD) in England & Wales, the polygon for that Sensitive Area is provided. For all other sites the polygon has been drawn as a simple guide to aid the work of Natural Resources Wales with permitting of discharges. These polygons are not appropriate for identifying areas suitable for bathing. The polygons are not a definition of the extent of the bathing water under the Bathing Water Directives 76/160/EEC or 2006/7/EC and should not be used for any definition of the bathing water area or extent.
