Darwin Waterfront Lagoon reopened to swimmers

Darwin Waterfront Lagoon reopened to swimmers
February 8, 2019

The Darwin Waterfront Corporation has advised that the Darwin Waterfront Recreation Lagoon and beach area has today reopened for swimming.

The lagoon was closed on 1st February 2019 due to an identified a decline in the water quality as a result of weather conditions.

Discovered during regular water quality monitoring, the Corporation described the closure as being a result of "overcast conditions and rain activity (which) is likely to have had an impact on the water quality."

The Corporation added "(we are) committed to maintaining the highest environmental practices to protect the users of the lagoon and the marine environment.

"Regular tests are undertaken in accordance with the National Health and Medical Research Council Standards and Department of Health Guidelines.

"The Recreation Lagoon’s flushing system continuously pumps fresh sea water resulting in the water being turned over approximately every seven days which will help to improve water quality quickly."

Announcing the reopening, the Corporation today advised "regular testing of the water quality has confirmed the water conditions have returned to a high standard. The break in the recent overcast conditions and rain activity is likely to have contributed to the improved conditions."

The Waterfront's Wave Lagoon remained open during the Recreation Lagoon's closure.
