Local authorities do not accept bad results.
The University of Porto claims that the river beaches of Gaia and Gondomar do not meet water quality parameters. Local authorities, however, argue that the analyzes say the opposite.
Bathers seem to feel a kind of false security on a beach that is equipped and supervised, but that is not even considered by the Portuguese Environment Agency as a river beach due to the history of poor results in water quality.
