Beach closures and water quality issues

Unplanned - Caution - Rainfall affects recreational water quality across City

Day 0 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.

Changes to water quality can result from a number of sources including stormwater runoff, sewage overflows, farming activities, sediment and animals.

As a precaution always avoid swimming:

  • one (1) day after heavy rainfall at open beaches
  • three (3) days after heavy rainfall at rivers, lakes and estuarine locations
  • in water that looks discoloured, murky, or smells unpleasant
  • near stormwater drains.

The City will continue to monitor sites across the Gold Coast.
