Surf Beach NO swimming advisory signs stand

The current (as at Feb 12th, 2023) advisory signs at Surf Beach stand.

Last Sunday (Feb 5th, 2023) Council had reported that they had a satisfactory result from the previous day's water sampling. The advisory signs at Surf Beach were duly removed. A subsequent test this week has once again returned a poor result. Possibly due to the recent heavy rains. Council had advised on February 3rd that routine sampling had returned a poor result for enterococci at Surf Beach, with advisory warning signs installed as a consequence. Under the Beachwatch program, Eurobodalla Council routinely samples 11 popular beaches across the shire between November and March. Council took an additional sample for testing on Friday and has monitored the site over the weekend. The advisory signs have now been removed as further testing has returned satisfactory results. Surf Life Saving has been notified. The original results may be related to heavy rainfall earlier last week.

Surf Beach continues to have variable water quality and Council has been unable to identify the cause of high enterococci levels to date.
