Beach closures and water quality issues

Caution - Rainfall affects recreational water quality across City

Day 6 of 8

Swimming areas have been affected by pollution from stormwater run-off due to the heavy rainfall experienced across the city.

There is a strong link between heavy rainfall events and the health of our local waterways. Following heavy rainfall, pathogens have an increased likelihood of being transported into waterways from the catchments.

Popular natural waterways and swimming locations, such as swimming enclosures, beaches, rivers, lakes, creeks and water bodies – particularly those near stormwater outlets – have been affected.
