E.coli O157 & Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome

Another Irish beach closed for swimming after E.coli found in the water

24th August 2012

Grattan Beach in Salthill, Galway, has become the eighth beach in the space of a week to be closed after bathing-water sampling showed E coli levels breached EU mandatory permitted levels. It is claimed that excessive rainfall over the past week has been a major contributory factor to the increased levels of bacteria detected.

Public notices have been put in place advising bathers not to swim there until the quality is restored and further tests are being carried out today to determine whether the E.coli levels have reduced.
