The EU SWIM Project is a cross-border research programme, aiming to develop a prediction system for live bathing water quality monitoring. The project combines the expertise of University College Dublin, the Agri-Food & Biosciences Institute and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful. The specially designed, pilot system will enable short-term pollution events to be predicted at the 9 cross-border beach locations.

The predictions will be communicated to the general public via various options, including the following: a free app for smart phones; Facebook and Twitter pages; electronic beach signage and a dedicated website. The ease of access to live water quality predictions will work towards protecting the public from episodes of illness caused by entering poor quality water.

The project has been funded by the EU’s INTERREG VA programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body. Total funding value €1, 393, 074.64.
