Elizabeth Quay splashpad debugged and reopened
With Perth enduring days of 40 degree plus temperatures, amoeba that caused the closure of the BHP Billiton Water Park at Elizabeth Quay late last week have been removed, with the aquatic play area reopening as of Monday.
Closed for several day during the latter part of last week, a Metropolitan Redevelopment Authority spokesperson said testing had detected some "non-disease causing amoeba in waste discharge pipes".
The spokeperson stated “these were not in the public areas and the Department of Health advised that at no time, did this pose a risk to public health.
"Testing indicated there was a faulty filter in the discharge system which has now been removed and replaced."
The spokesperson said ongoing, temporary closures of the BHP Water Park would be required for maintenance and monitoring.
Last Friday (5th February) WAtoday reported on the disappointment of children looking forward to a cooling splash during Perth's heatwave.
