Water quality good around the Peninsula, says council
The water quality of Brisbane Water around the Peninsula was good in 2017-2018, according to a "report card" released by Central Coast Council.
"The naturally well flushed nature of Woy Woy Bay, Cockle Bay and Booker Bay was reflected in excellent results," said council director Mr Scott Cox.
"Reduced water quality coming from the Narara, Erina and Kincumber Creek catchments have highlighted some concerns, with turbidity being the main concern.
"The Brisbane Water results highlight the importance of looking after our catchments," Mr Cox said.
Of the 32 sites monitored across the Coast in 2017-18 there were 24 (75 percent) graded as good or excellent, six (19 percent) were fair, one (three percent) as poor and one other graded as very poor."
