Canton Beach remains closed following recent rains
Friday, 15 January 2021
Central Coast Council has continued to monitor water quality at Canton Beach with daily sampling following a sewer rising main break in Wattle Street on 22 December.
Council was scheduled to partially reopen Canton Beach today, however recent rain has seen water quality readings decline and the area is deemed unsuitable for swimming, fishing and recreational activities.
Heavy rainfall increases the risk of our waterways being impacted by pollution due to stormwater run-off.
Council works in partnership with Department of Planning, Industry and Environment in the Beachwatch Program to monitor and report on water quality across our region.
