Update Sewage Spill - 16 April

Published on 16 April 2024

The City continues to work with environmental regulators in relation to the sewage spill in the north of the City last week.

Micro-biological testing results have confirmed that the Albert River is safe for recreational activities such as boating.

We will continue to assess water quality and address any potential risks in consultation with Queensland Health, the Department of Environmental Science and Innovation and Safe Food Queensland.

The City is supporting Safe Food Queensland to engage with the Aquaculture industry to assess any impacts to their operations. Safe Food Qld is the lead agency for engagement with the Aquaculture Industry.
