Sewage discharge a blow to waterway
I found it astonishing and very upsetting that the Central Coast Council waited until 4:55pm on Friday, March 24, to release the alert that raw sewage had been flowing into Correa Bay and possibly contaminating surrounding areas.
Council would have been aware of this problem by, at the very latest, Thursday morning, March 23.
To wait until the close of business on the Friday is just not good enough.
Who knows how many people had already caught fish or, heaven forbid, children may have even been swimming in this area.
This alert should have been issued Thursday morning and signage erected in and around the affected area to warn the community of possible health and contamination issues.
This discharge of raw sewage into the Brisbane Water system is just another blow that this magnificent water way doesn't need.
We need to save our waterways.
