Rainfall affecting water quality

Rainfall affecting water quality

All waterways on the Gold Coast

Swimming areas may have been affected by pollution from stormwater runoff due to recent heavy rainfall across the City.

As a precaution always avoid swimming:

  • one (1) day after heavy rainfall at open beaches
  • three (3) days after heavy rainfall at river and estuarine locations
  • in water that looks discoloured, murky or smells unpleasant
  • near stormwater drains

Stormwater runoff / pollution can increase pathogen levels in the water and make it unsafe for swimming.

Community safety is our first priority: we apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and assistance.
