Redlands Coast recreational waterways safe for swimming and recreational water sports

Following the recent wet weather that resulted in Council’s routine recreational water monitoring program identifying elevated levels of bacteria at a number of recreational water sites across Redlands Coast, all sites have now reduced to within the acceptable levels for recreational water activities.

In accordance with Healthy Land and Water’s Healthy Waterplay Guidelines, these recreational waterways are again suitable for swimming and recreation.

Low levels of enterococci bacteria and other hazards are often found in waterways, with risks and elevated bacterial levels often higher during and after heavy rainfall.

Council will continue to routinely monitor these recreational water sites to ensure they are safe for residents and visitors.
