Swimming Bans In Place At Three Dublin Beaches


Share this article


Dublin may be basking in warm sunshine, but swimming bans have been put in place at three of the city's beaches.

People are being advised to stay out of the sea after wastewater overflowed from a Pumping Station.

The notice affects Dollymount, Sandymount and Merrion strands.

The problem began when a power outage at the Spencer Dock Pumping Station resulted in wastewater building up and overflowing at the East Road surface water Pumping Station.

The Pumping Station is now fully operational again, but advisory bathing water notices have been issued at Dollymount, Sandymount and Merrion as a precaution.

Irish Water says the notices will stay in place until test results come back clear.
