Nelson Bay marina reopened after sewage leak


THE Nelson Bay marina foreshore was reopened on Monday 18 January for recreational activities, while beaches were reopened last Friday afternoon.

Beaches from Nelson Bay marina to Fly Point had been closed due to a sewage leak and the community was advised to avoid swimming in the area.

During excavation works on Monday 11 January at Teramby Road, Nelson Bay, a sewage main was damaged and began leaking into the harbour.

Prior to Monday’s reopening, Port Stephens Council received water quality test results back that show the water quality has returned to normal levels.

Port Stephens Council will continue to monitor water quality to ensure conditions remain safe.
