Description

The purpose of these guidelines is to protect the health of people using recreational waters (coastal, estuaries and fresh water) from natural hazards (e.g., surf, aquatic organisms) and non natural hazards (e.g., wastewater overflows). They are a tool for state and territory governments to safely manage the quality of recreational waters. A general overview of management practices and detailed information on potential hazards is presented. These guidelines focus on a preventative approach to managing recreational waters including the monitoring and grading of recreational waters.
