Bathers can enjoy clean and safe water at the nation's 10 main bathing sites, as the latest monitoring results indicate that water quality is suitable for swimming. Tests conducted by the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) from July 30 to July 31 showed that the water quality at seven of the 10 bathing sites was rated as either "excellent" or "good," with the other three classified as "average." Fulong (福隆) beach in Taipei County and two public bathing sites in Kaohsiung City -- Chichin (旗津) and Hsitzuwan (西子灣) beaches -- received an "excellent" rating. The beaches that received "good" and "average" ratings were: Hsin Chinshan (新金山) beach in Taipei County, Ta-an (大安) beach in Taichung County, Chiting (崎頂) beach in Miaoli County, Masago (馬沙溝) beach in Tainan County, Tunghsiao (通霄) beach in Miaoli County, Kending Tiaoshih (墾丁跳石) Recreational Seashore in Pingtung County and Shanyuan (杉原) beach in Taitung County. The results of the tests can be viewed at www.epa.gov.tw/beach.
