Recreational Waters

Council carry out sampling of recreation waters in the municipality to ensure these waters meet acceptable standards. West Strahan beach is sampled throughout the summer bathing season and the public pools at Rosebery, Zeehan and Queenstown are sampled throughout the bathing season.

The sampling is carried out to assess the waters against the requirements of the Public Health Act  1997 and associated Recreational Water Quality Guidelines 2007. An annual recreational water report is forwarded and sent to the Director of Public Health annually.
