Splash - Online Bathing Water System

Since July 2009 the EPA has had in place an online map-based website entitled “SPLASH” which provides the public with bathing water quality information for all of the identified bathing waters. (splash.epa.ie)  The website provides the latest bathing water sampling results during the bathing season together with their compliance with EU bathing water quality standards, their overall water quality status, lifeguard availability, weather and tidal information. It was extensively updated during 2013 to provide additional information including public access to bathing water profiles and incident notifications together with provision for Twitter ™ message alerts.

The EPA has also developed an on-line Bathing Water Implementation system (BWIS) to assist Local Authorities in uploading bathing water information together with a parallel Compliance Risk Identification System (CRIS). A key feature of the CRIS system is the ability to provide real-time notification of any incidents affecting bathing water quality directly via a link to the SPLASH website
