Quick survey finds Woy Woy Bay in 'good condition'
A quick survey of Woy Woy Bay on April 23 has found the bay to be generally clean and tidy, according to Clean4Shore facilitator Mr Graeme Johnson.
The survey was undertaken to seek out any larger items, and plan future outings and clean ups in the bay, he said.
"The lower tide greatly restricted this survey, especially with the obvious small litter gathered in front of the railway station," Mr Johnson said.
"Tidal eddies and wind deposit roadside litter in these mangroves, easily managed on a higher tide.
"Only a large four wheel drive tyre was dragged from the water near the end of Taylor St.
A wheelie bin and oyster basket were also found in the mangroves near the Spike Milligan Bridge.
A slow cruise in a dinghy back through Woy Woy Channel, turned up smaller items, plus three buckets and a sleeping mat.
"Overall the waterway here is in good condition.
"It was also pleasing to note that a derelict vessel was removed from the jetty boat ramp at Lions Park."
Mr Johnson said Clean4shore hoped to bring in a local school or youth group to clean the railway line foreshore and deeper into Horsfield and Correa Bay, on a higher tide.
