Monitoring water quality has become a growing responsibility for Council. Council monitors tidal pools for turbidity, suspended solids, total coliform and faecal coliform on a weekly basis to identify problems and monitor pollutants which may pose a health risk. All tidal pools within Council jurisdiction are closed for three days following a high pollution result. Major creeks within the Municipality are monitored on a monthly basis.
You can report a Water Quality concern by lodging a Request for Service with Council.
