Public Health Alert After Sewage Overflows


Tuesday, 7 June 2016


Central Coast Council is urging the community to avoid swimming and other recreational activities in public waterways until further notice following wild weather over the weekend.

Along with major stormwater pollution, there were a number of sewage overflows into waterways in a number of areas due to the significant rainfall.

Although council’s sewerage network is now operating as normal, public waterways including local beaches, lagoons and parts of Brisbane Water are still potentially affected.

Council is working with all relevant authorities including the NSW Environment Protection Authority and Public Health Unit.

The community can be assured that the drinking water supply has not been affected by these sewage overflows.
