Water quality joint statement
Issued by the Environment Agency, Southern Water, Thanet District Council and Canterbury City Council.
In response to a false and misleading story on Kent Live earlier today, we would like to jointly assure residents and visitors that the beaches in and around Thanet and Canterbury remain clean and safe.
These beaches were all awarded good and excellent bathing water quality by the Environment Agency (EA). They have been tested weekly by the EA during the bathing water season and have passed all the stringent tests to maintain water quality.
Joss Bay, Stone Bay and Tankerton are award-winning beaches and both Stone Bay and Tankerton have been awarded Blue Flags which is the gold standard for cleanliness, bathing water quality, beach facilities and safety.
We hope many visitors continue to enjoy the sunshine on these beautiful beaches over the coming sunny Bank Holiday weekend.
