PUBLIC NOTICE - Drakesbrook Weir

Published on Friday, 16 April 2021 at 3:37:56 PM

Recent sampling at the Weir has indicated elevated levels of bacteria in the water.  This is not unusual for this time of year, but has led to the Shire of Waroona advising that people should avoid prolonged immersion and putting their head under or swallowing water.  Swimming in the water should also be avoided for the time being, until further tests are undertaken. Visitors to the Weir may still undertake wading, paddling and similar activities. It is hoped that further testing next week will lift these restrictions.
