Safe to swim at Bettystown again

Recent water quality tests at Bettystown have proved the bathing water is clear of all bacteria.
Results which were made available to Meath County Council this afternoon show the water is clean and safe for bathing.
The no swimming advisory notice has been lifted.
A spokesperson for Meath County Council said it would continue with its procedures to take weekly samples of the water to ensure that Bettystown/Laytown beach is a safe and enjoyable place to swim.
Beach-goers were advised on Wednesday not to swim at Bettystown because of increased levels of ecoli and enterococci bacteria in the water.
Meath County Council had erected a notice on Wednesday advising people not to swim, within an hour of receiving results of bathing water samples which identified increased bacteria levels.
