Beach closures and water quality issues

Rainfall affects recreational water quality

Day 2 of 4

Swimming areas may have been affected by pollution from stormwater run-off due to the recent heavy rainfall across the City.

Residents and visitors are reminded that rainfall often collects pollutants from streets, gardens and farms, before it is flushed into our ocean and rivers via the storm water system. Stormwater run-off can increase pathogen levels in the water and make it unsafe for swimming. Popular swimming locations, such as swimming enclosures, rivers, lakes, creeks and beaches – particularly those near stormwater outlets – are sometimes affected.
