Tidal baths inspection may lead to remedial work
A council inspection of the Woy Woy tidal baths on Brickwharf Rd may lead to "remedial work", councillors have been told.
"Council is actively seeking approvals from the Department of Fisheries to undertake remedial works on all netted swimming enclosures," a report tabled at the July 23 Council meeting stated.
"These works will include removal of rubbish or large debris; removal of seagrass or seaweed wrack; scrubbing algae from stairs and entryways and removal of sand from the floor of ocean baths; scraping of oysters and algae from pylons, steel bars and /or concrete walls," it said.
"Council periodically removes encrusting aquatic growth from the walls of netted baths in accordance with an Environmental Assessment and permit from the NSW Department of Primary Industries (Fisheries).
"Council will be developing an Aquatic Infrastructure Strategy for the management and development of these assets...in the 2018-19 financial year," the report said.
