Monitoring the Safety of Recreational Swimming Locations
Recreational water quality sampling is undertaken throughout the summer season. Four popular recreational swimming locations are monitored regularly from December through until March each year.
Testing is to ensure the water at these locations remain safe for public use and most importantly, human health.
If monitoring reveals that the quality of the water has been compromised in any way, investigations will commence. Relevant warnings will be issued, via signage at the sites and on the Meander Valley Council Website.
Recreational water sites being monitored include:
• Meander River - Egmont Reserve, Birralee Road, Westbury
• Liffey River – The Esplanade, off Louisa St, Bracknell
• South Esk River – Lions Park, off Main Street, Hadspen
• Lake Trevallyn – Blackstone Park Drive , Off Kelsey Rd, Blackstone
