Geographical distribution of monitoring sites and Bathing Water Profiles

During the 2011 bathing season, the quality of bathing waters was monitored in 2155 sampling points across the country, according to the principles and guidelines of JMD 8600/416/E103/2009.

Bathing water Profiles were prepared for all beaches where the Monitoring Programme applied. Neighbouring monitoring points of the same river basin, located at adjacent waters and with a common designation for the past 4 years, have been grouped and composed one single Profile.

The sum of 1,508 Bathing Water Profiles constitute the Registry of Bathing Water Profiles for the country ( Coastal Map | Bathing water limits of profiles ). The beaches are those included in the monitoring programme for the year 2015, which consists of 1,508 monitoring points (Point Map | Locations of sampling points ).

The following tables show the monitoring points and bathing water Profiles by Region and Water District.
