Provenance information Local authorities report bathing water incidents and any bathing restrictions issued for ‘identified’ bathing waters (monitored and managed under <a href=""/>Bathing Water Quality Regulations 2008 (SI No. 79 of 2008)) </a> to the EPA via the Bathing Water Information System (BWIS) on <a href=""/> EDEN (Environmental Data Exchange Network).</a> It is planned to extend this system to allow for reporting of incidents at other monitored waters not managed under the Regulations ('non-identified' bathing waters) in the future. There are three types of restrictions that can be applied by local authorities - a Prior Warning (possible impact that may or may not be realised), bathing advisory (Advice Not to Swim) and bathing prohibition (Do Not Swim).
