Eurobodalla Council advise the community that heavy rain this week and the extra river flows washing to our beaches will likely have an impact on water quality. If the surf looks murky and discoloured, best avoid a potential health risk and find another spot to swim. Beachwatch has tested Surf Beach and Caseys in the Bay, and Shelley at Moruya Heads at one star, which means bacterial levels indicate a substantially increased risk of illness to bathers. Take care out there. More info here https://www.esc.nsw.gov.au/council-services/public-environmental-health/water-quality/eurobodalla-beachwatch-program
COMMENTS : Due to the risks associated with comments from unidentified contributors that expose The Beagle to possible legal actions under the NSW Defamation Act 2005 No 77 anonymous or Nom de Plume comments will not be available unless the author is known to the editor by way of a verified email address or by association.
Others who provide their REAL NAME (first name AND Surname) and a verifiable email address (it won't be published) are invited to comment below. (yes it is a pain but please comply - it would be a shame to see your comment deleted)
Those contributors KNOWN to us and verified may continue to use their First Name or Nom de plume for ease. The primary need for all of this is due to traceability should a legal action arise.
